EDUC 326 - Math Literacy in the Early Childhood & Elementary Classroom (4)


Students are living in a mathematical world where those who understand and can do math will have opportunities that others do not (NCTM, 2010). This course is designed to impact prospective teacher’s understanding of current mathematical teaching and learning theory and principles through the investigation of research-based practices. Content and position statements from NCTM and Alabama’s CCRS are given prominence. Prospective teachers gain insight into relevant mathematical concepts and principles, the impact of real-life mathematical contexts and models, and the role of choosing rich mathematical tasks to develop the habits of mind for mathematical success. A field experience component is embedded. Co-reqs: EDUC 321 , EDUC 322 , and EDUC 325 .
