MTL 3600 - Mathematics of the Elementary Curriculum

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): MTH 1610

Description: This course approaches mathematical concepts outlined in Colorado Model Content Standard for Mathematics (grades K-6) from an advanced perspective. By examining video and written cases 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) turn their attention from understanding their own mathematical thinking, and the thinking of their classmates, to understanding the mathematical thinking of children; (3) lay the foundation for being able to learn mathematics from teaching.
