EDUC 355 Teaching Math/Elem&Mid School

The course examines effective teaching strategies for teaching mathematics to elementary and middle school students. It emphasizes placing students in a role where they actively think, reason, problem solve, and make sense of an inquiry-oriented, problem solving classroom environment. Students will examine children's strategies for making sense of various mathematical concepts and consider means of facilitating the development of these strategies. Thirty hours of field experience is required and will allow the student to practice some of the strategies discussed in class.
