MAT 5130 - Geometry in the K-8 curriculum


This course is designed to build a deep understanding of the concepts of geometry important in elementary and middle school teaching and to support standards based instruction. When ever possible we will make connections across the content strands. By experiencing, discussing, and reflecting on mathematical concepts and problem solving, participants will expand their mathematical understanding. In a supportive environment, the course will be increasing the student’s content knowledge in geometry and developing enhanced problem solving skills and strategies and their own confidence as teachers of mathematics. The course will examine the K-8 curriculum in geometry, including several of the standards based programs and portfolio problems.

Credits: 3
