Teaching Methods: Mathematics Through The Arts – med571 (3 credits)

This course is designed for the elementary classroom, the mathematics lab, and some high school classrooms. This course examines how the different art disciplines apply to processing mathematics concepts. Participants learn to integrate the arts into mathematics instruction, create and adapt lessons for diverse populations, and utilize technology tools and resources for instruction. Participants create materials for use in their respective classrooms and grade levels.

This graduate-level course is 6 weeks. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
