This course is intended for pre-service teachers who are seeking to increase their understanding of mathematics. The course uses data collection and analysis to guide improvement in K-6 mathematics programs. The student will build on the knowledge gained in MAT 3020  to obtain a deeper understanding of mathematics as related to NCTM and the Vermont Framework guidelines. In this course, students will function as researchers by gathering data and analyzing data, as means of improving the curriculum and instruction in K-6 mathematics programs. As researchers, students are encouraged to ask questions, pose problems, and identify means of solving problems by using different strategies. Emphasis will be on student-centered instructional approach, with ample use of manipulatives and technology.
Prerequisite: MAT 3020  or consent of instructor.
