Sign up for HSTA's summer Professional Development (PD) courses

Foundations of Number Sense and Building Processes in Mathematics

The Hawaii State Teachers Association is committed to raising the bar for what it means to be a quality educator.

Our professional development courses ensure our members are able to provide a stable, nurturing learning environment that supports students' learning needs.

Here are the first two courses we are offering this summer:

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 both during Summer 2019 and 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. The course is focused on the Singapore Math Framework, specifically focusing on metacognition and processes in teaching mathematics.  Highlighted strategies in the course will cover the following topics; math talk, model drawing, questioning techniques, concept cartoons and making real-world connections. This course will be offered both during Summer 2019 and Fall 2019.
