Micro-Credential #3: Progression of Addition

The aspiring or current K-12 educator will explore videos and articles to reflect on how students develop a solid foundation for understanding addition. They will explore the foundational skills, strategies, and language that need to be mastered for students to progress with flexibility and efficiency to larger numbers. Educators will apply knowledge of addition instruction to reflect on the relationship between addition and subtraction.

In this course, you will:

  • Construct your own theory on the importance of conceptual understanding when teaching and learning addition.
  • Explore single-digit addition strategies that are foundational to visual/mental math.
  • Understand the connection between addition and subtraction.
  • Explain how a true conceptual knowledge of addition will support the transition into understanding subtraction.
