MAT 5120 - Algebra and Functions in the K-8 Curriculum


This course is designed to build a deep understanding of the concepts of algebra important in elementary and middle school teaching and to support standards based instruction.  Every attempt will be made to make connections across the content strands, although Functions and Algebra (Vermont standard 7.8) will be the focus. 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 within this standard and developing enhanced problem solving skills and strategies and their own confidence as teacher of mathematics. This course will examine the K-8 curriculum in the Functions and Algebra strand.

Credits: 3
