About:

This course is the first of a two-part series designed for K–8 pre-service teachers to address the conceptual framework for mathematics taught in elementary school. The focus of Part One will be on real number properties, patterns, operations and algebraic reasoning, and problem solving. The relationship of the course concepts to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards for K–8 instruction is also addressed.

This undergraduate-level course is 9 weeks This course is available as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
