ECE 391 - USM Math in Early Childhood EducONLINE
Aug 29 - Dec 16
This course examines key principles for effective teaching of early mathematics and what teachers need to know to guide and challenge a child┐s understanding so that all young children receive a high-quality education in mathematics, as advocated by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Additionally, the types of opportunities young children have to participate in mathematical exploration of the world around them will be examined. This course builds off our natural ability to develop numeracy and the child┐s interest in doing so and connects it with the development of a comprehensive mathematics program in early childhood education. Instruction in hands-on exploration is guided by key principles of mathematical thinking including number sense, geometry, patterning, and measurement. Students learn how to create learning environments that support cultural and linguistic diversity and gender-fair practices. The course addresses standards from the NAEYC developmentally appropriate practices (DAP), the National Council for the Teaching of Mathematics (NCTM), the State of Maine Early Childhood Learning Development Standards for Mathematics, along with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics. 3 Cr.
