CURR 316 - Teaching Science and Mathematics to Children

2021-2022 Catalog Year

Credit(s): 4
Lecture: 4
Non-Lecture: 0
This course covers contemporary teaching/ learning strategies for mathematics and science instruction in early childhood and elementary classrooms. Instructional techniques integrate hands-on learning, manipulatives, the student’s environment, functional uses of mathematics and science, and assessment strategies appropriate for all students. The focus will be on the nature of children’s science and mathematics learning, the teacher as a facilitator of meaningful learning, and New York State and National Learning Standards for science, mathematics, and technology. Constructivism, the idea that individuals must build knowledge from their own experience and thought, provides an underpinning for insights into the nature of children’s learning in the life and physical sciences and in mathematics. Includes field trip component.

Prerequisite(s): SPED 224  and MATH 140 .
Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): MATH 141 .
