EDE 645 Patterns in Mathematics (Effective Fall 2011)
3 lecture hours; 1 conference hour; 4 credits
A focus on expanding the teacher's mathematical knowledge for teaching with an emphasis on the reasoning required to recognize, describe, and generate mathematical patterns. Topics are taken from two broad areas of the elementary school curriculum: numbers (number sets, structure, counting techniques) and geometry (figures, shapes, structures). The course builds upon and extends prior studies in mathematics by examining relationships of patterns within each area and the connections between particular numeric and geometric patterns.
Prerequisite: Matriculation in Sequence I of the Graduate Elementary Education Program or EDE 603 or equivalent.
