Elementary Math Methods

My Elementary Mathematics Methods course focuses on developing a conceptual understanding of elementary mathematics through the use of manipulatiaves and other well-designed activities.  I hope to help my students develop confidence in themselves and their ability to effectively teach elementary mathematics.

Course Goals:

  • Preservice teachers will develop a "profound understanding" of elementary mathematics concepts
  • Preservice teachers will improve their own basic math skills
  • Preservice teachers will analyze traditional mathematics teaching methods
  • Preservice teachers will research best practices for teaching elementary mathematics
