ETC 513 Mathematics Methods I

This course is the first of a two-course sequence that examines theoretical perspectives on mathematics education and methods of teaching and learning mathematics at the elementary school levels. Candidates acquire and demonstrate practical experience in the understanding of the mathematics concepts and methods taught in grades K-3. In this course, candidates investigate various teaching strategies to motivate children, explore what it means to know and do mathematics, to solve problems, to use assessment to inform instruction, and to teach math equitably to all children. Candidates will use self-reflection to analyze and inform their own math instructional practices. Course includes components of state requirements for certification (edTPA, TPEP, etc.).
