Mathematizing ESOL II: Integrating Benchmark Percentages and Decimals
with Sherry Lehane
This course is brought to you through a partnership between World Education and the Adult Numeracy Center at TERC. It was developed by the MA SABES PD Center for Mathematics and Adult Numeracy at TERC, with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. This course is also offered for free to MA ABE practitioners through the SABES PD Center for Mathematics and Adult Numeracy.
The Mathematizing ESOL II: Percentages and Decimals course builds upon and extends conceptual understanding of math topics and how they can be integrated into ESOL instruction. In the prerequisite to this course, Mathematizing ESOL I, the focus is on math notation and operations with whole numbers. In this course, we extend that knowledge to include other rational numbers, with an emphasis on percentages and decimals. We will explore these concepts before looking at real life applications of these math skills and strategies to contextualize them in the ESOL classroom.
Estimated Completion Time: 4 hrs/week for 5 weeks (18 hours total)
