Course Concepts and Structure
The course will consist of six short lessons, taking approximately 20 minutes each. The lessons will combine presentations from Dr. Boaler and a team of undergraduates, interviews with members of the public, cutting edge research ideas, interesting visuals and films, and explorations of math in nature, sport and design.
Part 1: The Brain and Math Learning.
Knocking Down the Myths About Math.
Everyone can learn math well. There is no such thing as a math person. This session give stunning new evidence on brain growth, and consider what it means for math learners.
Math and Mindset
When individuals change their mindset from fixed to growth their learning potential increases drastically. In this session participants will be encouraged to develop a growth mindset for math.
Mistakes and Speed
Recent brain evidence shows the value of students working on challenging work and even making mistakes. But many students are afraid of mistakes and think it means they are not a math person. This session will encourage students to think positively about mistakes. It will also help debunk myths about math and speed.
Part 2: Strategies for Success.
Number Flexibility, Mathematical Reasoning, and Connections
In this session participants will engage in a number talk and see different solutions of number problems to understand and learn ways to act on numbers flexibility. Number sense is critical to all levels of math and lack of number sense is the reason that many students fail courses in algebra and beyond. Participants will also learn about the value of talking, reasoning, and making connections in math.
Number Patterns and Representations
In this session participants will see that math is a subject that is made up of connected, big ideas. They will learn about the value of sense making, intuition, and mathematical drawing. A special section on fractions will help students learn the big ideas in fractions and the value of understanding big ideas in math more generally.
Math in Life, Nature and Work
In this session participants will see math as something valuable, exciting, and present throughout life. They will see mathematical patterns in nature and in different sports, exploring in depth the mathematics in dance and juggling. This session will review the key ideas from the course and help participants take the important strategies and ideas they have learned into their future.

Developing Instructionally-Embedded Performance Assessments for the NGSS Classroom
This course is designed for participants who have already taken SNAP Course 1 (Performance Assessment in the NGSS Classroom) or who have extensive experience using the NGSS Appendices E, F,and G and with analyzing the dimensions of a performance assessment. In order to receive a Statement of Accomplishment at the end of this course, you must complete all of the reflections and assignments (the required tasks are indicated on the course outline and they can be identified by having a note about the possible number of points associated with them). There are also questions embedded throughout the course that are prompts for your group to discuss and in those cases one team member can enter a response for the whole group.
What you will learn
Procedures for defining performance outcomes, selecting phenomena, and developing a task to meet a set of criteria for high-quality assessment.
Participants will have opportunities at two crucial points during the course to engage in a peer feedback process with another development team.
