MATH 6663 - The Base Ten Number System and Operations: Multiplication/Division (Accelerating)


(3 sem. cr.) Developing students’ mathematical habits of mind and leading them to become mathematical thinkers are important goals of elementary mathematics education. In this course, teachers extend their own understanding of the base ten number system and the relationships among addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Teachers explore various interpretations and meanings of these operations while working with properties of multiplication, division, and proportionality. They investigate students’ misconceptions and struggles and develop effective intervention strategies. Teachers further develop their own mathematical habits of mind as they engage in challenging tasks and solve real-world mathematical problems.
