ECEDĀ 3107. Learning Mathematics for the Primary Grades: First through Fourth Grade. 3 Credit Hours.

The main focus of this course is to develop knowledge of the theories, methods and materials that can be used to teach mathematics concepts and skills in preschool through fourth grade classrooms. Students will develop both a) a conceptual understanding of the important identified math concepts for first through fourth graders and b) procedural knowledge of how to teach children mathematical concepts using developmentally appropriate strategies and activities. The purpose of this course is to help pre-service teachers discover how early childhood and elementary children think about and learn mathematics. The overall objective of teaching mathematics should be to help each child to understand mathematical concepts, enabling them to become mathematically literate. The foundations for this course are the Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics set forth by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. These standards propose significant change in mathematics teaching in the Pre-K - 12 classrooms, as well as how mathematical learning is assessed and evaluated. They are available online at http://www.nctm.org/standards/. NOTE: Must be admitted to candidacy.
