@EDUC 310 - Childhood/Early Childhood Mathematics Methods: PK-6

3 Credit(s)

Elementary Methods is a course designed to prepare students to teach mathematical concepts and skills in grades PK-6. Based on research, the NCTM and NAEYC Standards, pre-service teachers will learn how to help children in elementary and middle school develop their basic mathematics skills through understanding and practicing. They will also learn how to develop mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills. Simultaneously, the PK-6 mathematics curriculum will be reviewed to increase the knowledge base and the confidence level of the future teacher. Students will be introduced to current issues in mathematics education such as the Common Core Standards, the use of technology and manipulative materials, interdisciplinary education, performance assessment and constructivism. They will learn to develop lessons that meet the New York State Common Core Standards. A practicum in local elementary schools will provide students an opportunity to apply the concepts learned. Fall and Spring.
