EDU 51200 Elementary Mathematics Methods

This course provides a survey of approaches in the teaching of mathematics for the student preparing to teach in elementary schools. Teacher candidates will write inquiry lesson designs relevant to teaching mathematics. Teacher candidates will use the Missouri Learning Standards for Mathematics and NCTM standards in this course. Graduate teacher candidates will read and reflect on peer-reviewed literature related to mathematics education and investigate and apply STEM (technology in Math) ISTE Standards in lesson planning. Students will identify MLS for each lesson; present one or more lessons developed for a 5-lesson unit plan to their peers and provide reflective critiques when their colleagues present lessons in class.
