MTLM 5600 - The Mathematics of the Elementary Curriculum

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): Graduate standing

Pre/Corequisite(s): MTLM 5020

Description: This course approaches mathematical concepts in the elementary curriculum (with a focus on number and operations) from an advanced perspective. By examining video and written cases, as well as artifacts of children doing mathematics, students in this course will (1) connect their developing understanding of mathematics to the important mathematical concepts they will be required to teach; (2) tum their attention from understanding their own mathematical thinking, and the thinking of their classmates, to understanding and assessing the mathematical thinking of children; (3) lay the foundation for being able to learn mathematics from teaching. In addition, students will delve into the mathematics education literature that informs decisions about teaching and learning mathematics with understanding.
