MATH 0204 - Exploring the Mathematical Knowledge of Teaching I

Credits: 3

This course is designed to introduce prospective secondary teachers of mathematics to the mathematical knowledge of teaching. An activity-based format will be used to create a learning environment that fosters an exploration of the processes of mathematics. Topics are chosen to satisfy the DESE Subject Matter Knowledge Standards, MTEL requirements, and NCTM standards with an emphasis on the connections to the lower grades: e.g. the structure of our number system and algebraic thinking. The course will also contain some teaching experience in grades 5-12 or at the college level.
