Advanced Elementary Math Methods Course
Advanced Elementary Math Methods
EDU590 | Selected Topics in Education
This graduate-level course through the Walker School of Education will be taught on the Midland University Fremont campus by Dr. Kerry Williams. Math achievement is highly dependent upon student and teacher content efficacy. Students achieve at higher levels in math when they have teachers who have high math efficacy. In many elementary classrooms, teachers report low efficacy for teaching math (Boaler, 2018).
This course will create opportunities for you to improve your conceptual understanding of the math concepts you teach with the intent of increasing your efficacy for teaching it. In addition to learning conceptual math content, you will study effective pedagogy in the mathematics field including visual representations of math thinking.
It is a great opportunity for inservice teachers to gain efficacy in math content and pedagogy, earn three graduate credits and learn to LOVE math!
- Create visual evidence of conceptually accurate elementary math concepts included in the four domains of the Nebraska Content Standards for mathematics.
- Develop strategies that utilize visible thinking in mathematics + instruction.
- Unpack math concepts and create trajectory maps for teaching math in elementary schools.
