Course Description

K-5 Mathematics Endorsement Program

K-5 Math Endorsement Application Process

K-5 Math Endorsement Application

The K-5 Mathematics Endorsement preparation program is one of the action plans resulting from our conceptual framework process and is part of our core work supported by the RESA staff.

The need for the K-5 Mathematics Endorsement program resulted from the following:

  • Mathematics education has changed dramatically since the publication of the NCTM standards
  • reduce achievement gaps in mathematics
  • to necessitate the implementation of the Early Childhood Mathematics Endorsement Program.

Northeast Georgia RESA is committed to preparing its teachers to teach a rigorous standards-based mathematics curriculum by providing experiences to develop (a) in-depth content knowledge and understanding of pedagogy, (b) exemplary instructional skills based on research and designed to meet state and national standards, and (c) dispositions to help all students learn.

Overall Program Goals

Content focus varies by course; however, several high-level goals remain consistent throughout the sequence.  Overall goals include:

  • Solve problems using multiple strategies, manipulatives, and technological tools; interpret solutions; and determine reasonableness of answers and efficiency of methods.
  • Select and use a variety of formative and summative assessment techniques to monitor student progress, gauge students’ mathematical understanding, and interpret school-based progress.

The program consists of four content courses with embedded field experiences:

  • Understanding      Number and Operations
  • Understanding      Geometry
  • Understanding      Algebra
  • Understanding      Data Analysis and Probability

 According to HB280, teachers who receive the endorsement may be eligible for $1,000 supplement for five years upon certification of the Math Endorsement.  See HB280 Math and Science Teachers Supplement FAQs.
