###### Course Synopsis

Mathematics has always a compulsory and major subject in elementary classes, but the existing teachers’ beliefs and perceptions of teaching mathematics at elementary level in our context are not promising; we are rather more focused towards transmission of knowledge by engaging students in memorizing mathematical rules and formula, rather engaging them in constructing mathematical knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts .Therefore, it is very important for elementary teachers need to make what seem to be mathematical contradictions clear to their students from early age. This course will equip Student Teachers with the knowledge to teach mathematics in elementary grades. They will plan mathematics lessons and activities, and engage in practice teaching of mathematics. This course intends to extend prospective teachers’ content knowledge as well as building their understanding of the nature of mathematics, teacher beliefs and perceptions and mathematics teaching and learning. This will enable prospective teachers to develop students’ problem solving, logical thinking and reasoning skills. The importance of designing effective assessment items to facilitate students’ learning is also considered

###### Course Learning Outcomes

Learning Outcomes: After completion of this course prospective teachers will be able to: • Attain a better understanding of mathematical ideas; • Revisit beliefs, ideas and perceptions towards teaching and learning of mathematics; • Acquire the skills and competencies required for the teaching of mathematics at elementary level. • Apply effectively the various methods, techniques and strategies of teaching mathematics • Appreciate mathematical processes and discover the power of mathematical thinking. • Appreciate learning by doing rather than instrumental learning. • Develop a positive attitude towards teaching of mathematics. • Design unit plan for teaching and manage a classroom effectively. • Design assessment for/of/as learning to facilitate students learning. • Use ICT in teaching and learning of mathematics
