EDU 512 - Teaching Elementary School Mathematics
The goal of this course is to prepare pre-service teachers in the M.S.T. program to teach mathematics to elementary school students in an effective, constructivist and equitable manner. In class meetings, the instructor will use hands-on mathematics activities to model appropriate strategies for teaching mathematics in a student-centered classroom and to build pre-service teachers’ understandings of mathematics. Inquiry teaching also will be modeled and expected in students’ lesson plans.
By completing class readings, course assignments and observations of children in classrooms, students will develop a multitude of techniques and strategies for providing mathematics instruction to diverse learners.
