CEDUC 3373 Developmental Experiences in Mathematics and Science

This course helps prospective teachers to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to create a learning environment that fosters the development of each young child's mathematical and scientific power. A constructivist view of learning provides the foundation for consideration of the content, methods, and materials for the mathematics and science curriculum for children aged 3-8 years. Play strategies and integrated curriculum themes are developed. Students are expected to design a curriculum unit and to implement and evaluate the unit within their concurrent field placement. Developmental readiness, learning styles, multicultural issues, and other diagnostic concerns are addressed.
