During this course, participants will examine their own mathematics
understandings and seek to expand these understandings, especially as they
relate to computation and the foundations of algebra K-4. Through the use
of various standards-based mathematics curricula, participants will better
understand the important concepts in an elementary mathematics program,
how these concepts align with Common Core Standards, and how teaching
through “best practice” can help students to understand, retain, and
connect K-4 mathematics concepts. Participants will focus on meaningful
student assessment methods that promote further learning of mathematics.
The course will provide an in-depth look into the number, operation, and
algebra mathematics concept strands at the K-4 elementary level as well as
effective strategies for teaching these concepts. This course will
incorporate lessons and activities that align with the Common Core
Standards.
