Course Introduction

To know and use mathematics in today’s society, children must have a conceptual understanding of its underlying ideas, as well as fluency in its elementary procedures. This understanding is developed by building on prior knowledge, playing with new concepts, and communicating ideas and questions.

The 5-Step Curricular Process, developed by the nationally renowned Bob Moses, allows students to bridge their experiences and language to mathematical concepts and symbols. The shared experience of the 5-Step Process becomes a grounding metaphor that can be referenced throughout the student’s mathematical career. In this course, participants will experience mathematics from the student perspective, analyze each step of the 5-Step Process, and learn to create their own 5-Step lesson.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and use Bob Moses’ 5-step curricular process
  • Mathematize a shared experience
  • Create a 5-step lesson to use in their math classroom
