## Course 4 - Re-teaching math while teaching chemistry

## Course Description

How do you support students who don’t have the algebra skills required to master chemistry content? In this module, we will explore how to re-teach these algebra skills needed to master important chemistry topics, such as stoichiometry, the gas laws and acids and bases. First-year Corps Members are the target learners for this course.

## Knowledge-Skills-mindset

*By taking this course, teachers will develop the following:*

Knowledge:

-Teachers are familiar with the chemistry concepts that require algebra skills and what these algebra skills are.

-Teachers understand the purpose of re-teaching algebra skills to their chemistry students.

Skills:

-Determine which algebra skills need re-teaching amongst their students.

-Collaborate with other teachers, specifically math and science teachers, on how to strengthen the targeted algebra skills amongst students.

-Re-teach the targeted algebra skills so that students are able to master the chemistry content.

Mindset:

-Recognize that chemistry requires strong algebra skills and that providing support for students who struggle with algebra is essential in creating a level playing field for all who want to succeed in chemistry.

-Recognize that the insight and collaboration of other teachers, specifically math and science teachers, is instrumental in strengthening students’ algebra skills.
