Here are the newest PD courses available for the fall:
MA184043 Numbers Make Sense (Hilo Hybrid Course)
HSTA PD Trainer Cadre: Hope Pualani McKeen
Math is a core subject in which we want our students to achieve mastery in prior to graduating from public education in Hawaiʻi. This course is based on Jerome Bruner’s C-P-A approach which allows students to learn mathematics through concrete experiences in which they can transfer pictorially and then abstractly to be more fluent with number relationships. It offers teachers a way in which to facilitate learning of mathematical number sense so that students gain higher level complex thinking and understandings. Numbers Make Sense provides a concrete way to help all your students be critical thinkers and problem solvers.

MA184074 | K-6 Foundations of Number Sense
This course is designed as an introductory course to support educators in teaching number sense using strategies and philosophies used in Singapore. Give students a deeper understanding of numbers, setting them up for current and future success as mathematical thinkers. Learn how to build foundational number sense not through memorization of rules and facts, but through a clear understanding of numbers, their magnitude, and their relationships with other numbers. Learn new methods for building number sense and teaching computation in ways that make sense to both you and your students in alignment with the Common Core State Standards. With this solid foundation, you will prepare them to develop higher-level math skills and reasoning ability for years to come. This course will be offered Fall 2019.
MA184026 | Building Processes in Mathematics
This course is designed to help elementary education teachers in grades K-6 build processes within the classroom to help students build math problem solving skills.
