Post-Master’s Advanced Certificate in Developing Algebraic Thinking in the Middle Grades
The fully-online, five course post-master’s program in Developing Algebraic Thinking in the Middle Grades at Queens College is designed to deepen and enhance elementary and middle school mathematics teachers’ knowledge of mathematics and its pedagogy. Approaches are grounded in a philosophy of student-centered learning, deep mathematical understanding, and developing a growth mindset in participants and their students. With this mission in mind, the goals of this new program include outcomes for participants related to mathematics content, pedagogy, and attitudes. Participants will demonstrate meeting these goals and objectives through a culminating project at the end of the five-course sequence, and by incorporating these ideas into their respective classrooms.
