EEDUC 5102 Teaching Elementary School Mathematics

Mathematics in the United States has historically been a difficult field because it has not always taken children's developmental and learning needs into account. In this course, we support learners gaining knowledge needed to teach school-age children and increase competency in the mathematics itself. A variety of materials and models are used to show connections to daily life, and many different approaches to mathematics are investigated. Relevant children's literature and technology are also emphasized.
