ECEE 3300 - Methods of Teaching Mathematics for Early Childhood and Elementary Education

This course focuses on research-based approaches to teaching mathematics to elementary age children. Students plan and enact mathematics lessons in their field placement and reflect on their teaching. There is a strong emphasis on identifying and building on children’s home, community, and mathematical strengths; on understanding the relationship between mathematics, children’s lives, and real-world issues; and on supporting children in making sense of mathematical ideas through problem solving and discussion.

Requisites: EDTE 2000, 2010, 2020 concurrent and advanced standing in education and 2.75 GPA
