EDU 410 Integrated Approaches to Teaching Middle Math

Students are exposed to mathematics learning strategies and the methods and strategies for teaching mathematics. Students have the opportunity to analyze programs and learning materials as they set up environments and situations which stimulate interest in learning mathematics. A special emphasis is on how math can be integrated with other major content areas in the teaching and learning process. Modeling strategies, the appropriate use of manipulatives, the integral use of calculators and computers, learning in cooperative groups, reading and writing to learn, and the other NCTM standards are the core of this course. A clinical virtual experience from schools using "best practices" is required.
