IL 2470 - REASONING AND PROVING IN SECONDARY MATH

Credits: 3.0

This course focuses on addressing three overarching questions: 1) what is reasoning-and-proving? 2) How do secondary students benefit from engaging in reasoning-and-proving? 3) How can teachers support the development of students' capacity to reason-and-prove? Teachers explore these questions through engagement in a variety of activities that include: solving and discussing challenging mathematical tasks; analyzing narrative cases that make salient the relationship between teaching and learning and the ways in which student learning can be supported; examining and interpreting student work that features a range of solution strategies, representations, and misconceptions; and making connections to their own teaching practice.
