Content & Methods for Teaching Elementary School Mathematics

This course examines content knowledge and methodologies for teaching mathematics to Elementary School students. Primary emphasis is given to the development of the number systems; the decimal system; the use of technology and various manipulatives; the standard algorithms for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of integers, fractions and decimals, and their rationales; and the relationship of elementary mathematics and various curricula to more advanced mathematics. Lesson planning, assessment, mathematics curricula, and making mathematics lessons and concepts accessible to all students are discussed. The course is intended to help the prospective elementary school teacher see elementary school mathematics education as an integral and fundamental part of a student's overall mathematical education.
