Mathematical Thinking in Children

(3 cr.) - Session(s): Spring | Course Even-Numbered Years Only

Teachers examine what it means to know and learn K-5 mathematics based upon theory and research in cognitive psychology and mathematics education. A variety of materials that help illustrate students’ thinking in mathematical contexts are used to provoke consideration of how students develop mathematical knowledge. Regular “field experiences” with elementary school-aged children are required.
