EDUC 338 - Mathematics for Young Children

(2cr) EDUC 338 is designed to provide a developmental approach to mathematical concepts for young children.  The mathematical concepts discussed include counting, number sense, measurement, geometry, addition, subtraction, patterns, and displaying data. The importance of observing a young child's interest in mathematics and extending interest through age-appropriate and real-life activities are emphasized. In addition the course explores ways to embed authentic assessment and how to use assessment information to develop activities further. This course is part of the Shepherd University teacher education program which is founded on the philosophy and theme of "Teacher as Reflective Problem Solver." The course is also based on the principles and standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards, the Council for Exceptional Children Initial Preparation Standards and the National Education Technology Standards for Teachers. Prerequisites: Admission to the teacher education program, EDUC 333 , EDUC 315 /EDUC 315L , or permission of instructor.
