CIEE 3290 Mathematics Methods and Assessments K-6

The purpose of this course is to develop teacher candidate competence in planning, conducting, and assessing mathematics learning experiences with children from kindergarten through sixth grade to ensure the success of all children in meeting the standards. The course makes use of relevant readings and video to show the experiences of diverse children to enable teachers to interpret children’s mathematical behavior in meaningful ways. It considers mathematical thinking as part of a developmental process and explores the origins of elementary students’ mathematical ideas before school begins and in formal school settings. The content of the course follows the recommendations for the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA) & Council of Chief State School Officers, (CCSSO) 2010), principles and standards for school mathematics developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, (NCTM, 2000, NCTM, 2002), and reflects performance expectations for K-6 students on statewide and other standardized assessments. This course is part of the second semester series of education courses and 1/3 of the course is held in the field, in a K-6 classroom.
