ECE 3140 - Math and Science: Birth to Age 5

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ECE 2950

Description: Principles, methods, and materials for teaching math and science to young children, birth to 5 years, are the focus of this course. Included are opportunities for intentional planning, lesson implementation and assessment of standards-based content, processes and materials appropriate in a child-centered environment. Students will explore pedagogy related to inquiry-based science and mathematics processes, and they will learn how to maximize children’s learning by integrating mathematical and scientific concepts into other areas of the early childhood curriculum. Students are required to spend ten hours outside of class time in a math and/or science related observation or working directly with young children.
