Students learn current trends and strategies in teaching elementary and middle level mathematics with a focus on lesson planning, state and national standards, assessment, differentiation, intervention and problem solving. Students examine beliefs and knowledge about the goals and content of elementary and middle school mathematics including content such as numbers and operations, algebra, number patterns, geometry, measurement, data analysis, and probability. Implementation of teaching strategies is achieved through a required field experience of 32 hours in planning and teaching units of study.
