Bring Idaho Alive

Bring Idaho Alive is a course designed to teach educators about the natural and cultural history of southeastern Idaho and to show them how they can use this information in their classrooms. On the fourth Monday of each month from February through May, educators will spend 2 hours with local, natural, and cultural history experts learning about topics ranging from weather in Idaho to plants, animals, geology, and people. From June 6th-June 8th, students will get hands-on experience with these topics as they take a walking tour through the historic district of Idaho Falls and Tautphaus Park, take a trip to the INL, and experiment with incorporating GIS technology into teaching and learning about Idaho's history. All class and credit fees will be covered for you by a grant from the Idaho State Department of Education.

Teaching Mathematical Thinking K-5 (Spring 2017)

Idaho State University has recently partnered with the Idaho State Department of Education to develop a professional development course, Teaching Mathematical Thinking, as part as the Idaho Math Initiative to ensure teachers are given the opportunity to stay current in mathematical education and research for their classrooms.

This course provides an opportunity to study fundamental mathematical theory underlying the content area of number and operation and structures of algebraic thinking. Topics will include: meanings of operations and how they relate to one another, computation within the number system as a foundation for algebra, the use of mathematical models, and the understanding student thinking. Emphasis will be given to developing ideas about multiplicative thinking, proportional reasoning, and algebraic reasoning.
