Facilitator and Participant Guides
The facilitator guides are available for use by a course facilitator or anyone wishing to lead a group of learners through the complete set of materials (video, print, and web) for Mathematics Illuminated.
Each of the facilitator guides includes notes on how to facilitate the session, a list of materials needed, tips, and answers for prepping and leading the session.
Each of the facilitator and participant guides includes concept application, problem-based learning activities, and opportunities for analyzing data—all in an inquiry-based model. A framework for applying concepts to state and local standards is also included. The activities seek to model best teaching practices by requiring the participant to be an active explorer rather than a passive recipient of information and are designed to be used between each of the video segments and to draw from content in the unit’s video, and the text chapter.
