ED 6503 - Elementary Math Methods


Students explore and practice teaching and learning mathematics as a subject area that requires problem-solving and critical thinking. Preservice teachers will re-conceptualize mathematical concepts and develop skills reasoning with various representations while building knowledge and critically examining the complexities of elementary school mathematics intruction. Focus will be given to numbers and quantities, measurement, and the development of algebraic reasoning. Time will be spent on the use of concrete learning aids and the use of student interviews/conferencing, which will facilitate discussion and development of knowledge related to methods of remediating math difficulties. This course requires non-credit field placement experience that analyzes curriculum, assessment, and classroom management in the elementary classroom for grades 1-6.
