Experiences in Math for Young Children

This course provides early childhood teacher candidates with an organized, sequential approach to create a developmentally appropriate math curriculum for preschool and primary school children. Emphasis is placed on candidates recognizing three kinds of learning: informal, naturalistic, and adult guided as they introduce math concepts and plan activities to support young children’s construction of concepts and skills essential to a basic understanding of mathematics. (This course does not apply to teacher certification majors.) Prerequisites: A Grade of “C” or better in ED 200, CC 303 (same as Early Childhood Education 345). Credit, 3 hours.
