Carrie and Kelly’s OER grant project will create open materials for Math 098. Community colleges throughout Oregon have been planning and implementing MTH 098 since 2014 based on recommendations from the developmental education redesign workgroup. The course was created to provide a shortened, more appropriate path for students to take MTH 105 and earn an Associate of Arts Transfer degree. Some institutions, such as Clackamas Community College, include the added benefit of allowing for MTH 105 to serve as a prerequisite to MTH 243, extending the pathway for students.

Their goal is to create materials that:

- Are learner-centered
- Readily integrate group work and collaboration
- Create opportunities for students to make critical thinking a habit of mind
- Acknowledge and respect common anxieties, personalities, and professional goals of students in the “alternate pathway”.

Visit their public MTH 098 course on MyOpenMath to learn more.

In this second part of Volume 2 we focus on the meaning of the word 'misconceptions'and compare it to the general understanding of the meaning of 'errors' and 'mistakes'. These different words have different concepts associated with them. We tend to use the word 'misconception' indiscriminately when talking to colleagues, and more often than not, we are talking about learner errors or mistakes rather than misconceptions.

Genes, Environment, and Behavior 1 is the first of two lessons about the field called behavioral genetics, in which scientists study the reciprocating influences of genes and environments on behavior, particularly human behavior. It provides students with a clear understanding of how behavior is defined by scientists and an overview of the genetic and environmental forces that interact to shape behavior.In this lesson, students are assigned reading materials from the book Behavioral Genetics: An introduction to how genes and environments interact through development to shape differences in mood, personality, and intelligence, published by AAAS and The Hastings Center. These chapters are character-based and have relatively easy context. Provided are quizzes that that are administered after the short readings. These quizzes foster a discussion on each topic in behavior and genetics. The titles of the chapters in this lesson are: 1) "What is behavioral genetics?", 2) "How do genes work within their environments?", 3) "How do environments impinge upon the genes?"

This scenario covers a situation where a lecturer uses images from a magazine (in this case, a prestigious one) in her campus-based lecture. She'd like to put this lecture online and make it freely available. The scenario covers what she needs to do with the images, owned by someone else, that have traditionally been used in the lectures.

This is a fairly common theme / issue faced by lecturers in terms of preparing thier teaching materials.

Through funding provided by Georgia’s Race to the Top initiative and in partnership with the Georgia Department of Education, new self-paced common core professional development course Mathematics teachers.

The Georgia Department of Education has developed two flexible, ready-to-use courses intended to support Georgia educators in the understanding and effective implementation of the CCGPS.

The courses may be used by individual educators, professional learning communities, or by districts or schools. The time required for the courses may be customized for a variety of applications by expanding the amount of time spent on the activities and in discussion.

Each course contains hands-on activities, related readings and research, recommended topics for discussion, web and video resources, and self-assessments.

The content of the courses was developed under a grant from the U. S. Department of Education. However, the content does not necessarily represent the policy of the U. S. Department of Education, and endorsement by the Federal Government should not be assumed.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to interpret and design cognitive formative assessment with respect to a three-dimensional view of learning. The NRC Framework for K-12 Science Education and the resulting Next Generation Science Standards embody this focus on an integrated three-dimensional view of science learning—as one of the signature features of this new vision. The materials for this resource come from a series of PD sessions on 3D formative assessment developed and provided by Katie Van Horne, Shelley Stromholt, Bill Penuel, and Philip Bell.

In the first lesson, Toxicology 1: Toxicology and Living Systems, students are introduced to the basic concepts and terminology of the science. Toxicology 2: Finding the Toxic Dose allows students the opportunity to conduct a toxicology experiment on a plant. Specifically, students determine the toxic dose of a chemical that will inhibit seed germination in Brassica rapa, a relative to cabbages and mustards. In the third lesson, Toxicology 3: Toxicology and Human Health, students investigate the effect of environmental tobacco smoke on human lung development. These lessons can be done in a series or they can stand alone.

Unit 1- Counting with Friends
OVERVIEW
In this unit, students will start kindergarten thinking of counting as a string of words, but then make a gradual transition to using counting as a tool for describing their world. They must construct the idea of counting using manipulatives and other resources to see the numbers visually (dot cards, tens frames). To count successfully, students must remember the rote counting sequence, assign one counting number to each object counted, and at the same time have a strategy for keeping track of what has already been
counted and what still needs to be counted. Only the counting sequence is a rote procedure. The meaning students attach to
counting is the key conceptual idea on which all other number concepts are developed. Students will develop successful and meaningful counting strategies as they practice counting and as they listen to and watch others count.
