CEDUC 3379 Teaching Geometry, Measurement, and Data

This course explores the critical issues, content, and procedures involved in teaching children mathematics.  We will study the development of mathematical thinking in elementary school children, with a focus on student learning of geometry, measurement, statistics and algebraic thinking in elementary grades. Particular attention will be given to research in the learning of mathematics, the appropriate use of concrete materials and models, as well as the teaching of mathematics within an integrated curriculum.

A grade of C+ or higher in this course is a prerequisite to student teaching.
