EDUC541 - Elementary School Mathematics


This course explores mathematics in the elementary school setting. The class is approached through the following four sections: 1) preparing students to study higher level mathematical content; 2) math content and pedagogy; 3) connection between elementary math and higher level math content; and 4) best practices for teaching mathematics at the elementary level. Throughout the course, candidates will be asked to make connections between higher level mathematics and how that relates to the depth and complexity of the content. Candidates will then explore those connections through creating practical methods to be used in a class setting. The use of instructional technology and resources as enhancements to understanding and the teaching of math will also be explored.
