CIEE 3240 Learning and Assessment in Mathematics

Students explore principles and theories of mathematics education as well as techniques for teaching and assessing mathematics knowledge in grades N-8 that are consistent with the NCTM’s Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for Teaching Mathematics (1989). The course emphasizes teaching mathematics from the point of view of the learner and covers topics ranging from preschool counting skills to algebra concepts and procedures in middle school. Cooperative problem solving, experience with manipulative materials, writing about mathematics, and case study analysis prepare prospective teachers to work with diverse learners. The course work is coordinated with a field experience in which students apply their learning to the classroom.
