- How do children move beyond the notion that "multiplication is repeated addition" (MIRA)?
- What mathematical distinctions do students make when reasoning with multiple contexts for multiplication and division?
TurnOnCCMath will soon take up these and other questions with its next free, Massive Open Online Course for Educators (MOOC-Ed).
"Division and Multiplication of Whole Numbers: Bridging to Fraction Understanding" will explore how students begin to recognize contextual problems and model with multiplication and division problems, properties, and number facts. Along the way, the MOOC-Ed will identify "where some of the key misconceptions are hiding."
Open to elementary and middle grades educators seeking to understand student multiplicative reasoning, this free MOOC-Ed runs through early May. Even though it begins today, Monday, March 17, registration for this self-directed course will stay open through Monday, March 31. REGISTER NOW.
