ECED 325 Advanced Math Methods (3 credits)

Prerequisite Admission into the BAS-T program.

Course Description
Develop a deep understanding of the development of spatial and mathematical learning across all strands: number & operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis & probability. There will be an emphasis on the content included in the state early learning guidelines and standards for children birth through grade three and their families who are culturally, linguistically, and ability diverse.

Student Outcomes
1. Critique classroom discourse and define the role of the teacher in facilitating that discourse through findings from research on student learning.

2. Utilize problem solving skills in the mathematical content areas of numbers and operations, geometry, algebra, data analysis and probability, and measurement appropriate for adaptation for children from birth through grade three.

3. Plan a problem-based mathematics lesson that includes elements of differentiation, assessment, and technology, and requires students to engage in sense making and mathematical communication while adhering to state and national standards.

4. Develop assessments that give a teacher insight into student thinking about mathematics content and create plans to implement adjustments from the results.

5. Research ideas for teaching mathematics in diverse classrooms to incorporate into lesson planning.

6. Develop knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors across early learning settings, examine the nature of mathematics, how mathematics should be taught, and how students learn mathematics.

7. Observe and analyze a range of approaches to mathematics teaching and learning focusing on tasks, discourse, environment, and assessment.
