EDUC 513 Teaching Mathematics Methods (3 credits)
Provides a base for understanding how the mathematics curriculum in elementary schools is changing and how children learn mathematics. Gives attention to problem-solving and assessment. Includes teaching strategies, techniques, and learning activities related to specific strands of mathematics. Emphasis is on models, materials, and higher order thinking skills to develop concepts and skills so that students with different learning styles can be accommodated as they move from concrete materials and examples to generalizations and abstract reasoning. Connections are made between mathematics and other disciplines as well as between mathematics and real-life applications such as consumers and workers.
