38-6135 Methods of Teaching Math at the Elementary and Middle School Levels


At the elementary (K-8) school level, students need to have many concrete and varied experiences so that they can discover the mathematical principles, which are so often taught by rote procedure. This course places special emphasis on developing strategies that encourage elementary and middle school students to become actively involved in the learning process. Special attention is given to methods of developing an intellectual environment in the elementary school classroom that can facilitate students’ construction of mathematical concepts. Teacher candidates learn how to use a variety of math manipulates, materials, and approaches as well as how to integrate the use of technology in teaching mathematical skills and concepts. Teacher candidates are required to observe math lessons in K-8 classroom settings to extend their understanding of effective math teaching.
