MATH 6564 - Measurement, Data, and Geometric Thinking


(3 sem. cr.) Measurement and geometry are often challenging topics for elementary students, but they represent some of the most visible uses of mathematics in students’ day-to-day lives. In this course, educators learn strategies for connecting these topics to other mathematical concepts, including fractions, decimals, and the number system. In geometry, educators move beyond strategies for developing a familiarity with basic shapes and their properties to explore higher-order tasks that involve geometric thinking, measurement concepts, and proportional relationships. Using data as a context to support students’ learning of these mathematical ideas, educators have the opportunity to explore real-world problems and collect, represent, and interpret data.
