Course DescriptionStudents examine how young children ages birth to 8 understand and engage in mathematical knowledge, concepts and processes. Students explore and critique different theories of mathematical approaches to learning, such as inquiry-based models. Experiences designing and teaching lessons, creating physical and social environments to promote mathematical thinking, and assessing children's' knowledge and skills encourage positive attitudes toward mathematics in the learning environment.
The Internet component of the Spring/Summer Classroom/Internet offering reflects the scheduling of the mandatory pre-course reading.
Students must enrol in this course prior to the last Friday of the Internet component.
