###### Course Synopsis

This course provides opportunities for prospective elementary teachers to strengthen their mathematical knowledge and skills and to gain confidence in their understanding of mathematics. An important outcome of this course is for prospective teachers to be able to teach mathematics successfully in the elementary grades. Research-based knowledge about good math instruction provides a solid base of information for educators to use as they identify mathematics skills students need to develop, as well as teaching strategies and instructional approaches that best support the development of these skills. The course is designed based on what research tells us about good math instruction. The overall organization of the course is divided into four units: 1. Number and Operations 2. Algebra and Algebraic Thinking 3. Geometry and Geometric Measurement 4. Information Handling Each unit of study has a consistent design or organization and is meant to maximize time on learning for prospective teachers. 1. Content: Most one hour sessions will begin working on a math problem. Prospective teachers will engage in solving and discussing a math problem and sharing approaches and solutions. The content has been developed to so that prospective teachers will engage in mathematics in depth to help them connect concepts within and across the four units. 2. Pedagogy: In each lesson prospective teachers will actively engage in doing mathematics in order to experience approaches to teaching and learning math that they can use when they teach. They will recognize that there are often multiple ways of approaching a problem and in some instances more than one correct answer. The instructor will present questions that stimulate curiosity and encourage prospective teachers to investigate further by themselves or with their classmates. The course will also examine how children learn and develop mathematical understanding and skills and how the way children think influences the teaching of mathematics in the primary, elementary, and middle grades. 3. Assignments: Students are expected to continue learning about math and the teaching of math after class. There will be assignments to stretch prospective teachers content knowledge and to learn more about teaching math. Assignments will take many forms including independently solving math problems and school based tasks. In summary, the General Mathematics course is a comprehensive effort to build and deepen maths content knowledge, to learn and use high-quality instructional practices, and to study ways in which young students approach and learn mathematics.

###### Course Learning Outcomes

Students will: ● Increase their mathematical content knowledge for Number and Operations, Algebra and Algebraic Thinking, Geometry and Geometric Measurement, and Information Handling for teaching in the primary, elementary, and middle grades ● Increase their confidence, competence, interest, and enthusiasm for mathematics by exploring and doing mathematics ● Deepen an understanding of how children learn mathematics ● Build a variety of instructional techniques with clear purposes ● Enhance their use of questioning techniques to elicit children’s understanding ● Learn ways to engage students in mathematical thinking through interactive activities
