EDC 774 - Methods of Teaching Mathematics I

3 Credit(s) This course is the first of two designed to provide students with the training to be a teacher of Mathematics at the middle or high school level. It will offer a general study of the background and philosophies of teaching Mathematics, with a focus on methods and materials in the classroom, curricular issues and professional concerns, analysis of the teaching/learning processes, and a study of relevant national standards and the Massachusetts state standards for Mathematics. The course represents a continuation of students’ growth in attaining the Professional Standards for Teaching (PSTs), revisiting many of them at the practice level before demonstrating them in the practicum semester. Three lecture hours per week. Field placement and field-based assignments required.
Pre-requisites: Permission of the department chairperson and acceptance into licensure program.
