EDUC 5290 - STEM for Teaching K-6 Mathematics


3 Credit(s) | See Department Fee

This course, designed for K-6 teachers, will focus on STEM integration through the lens of mathematics. Participants will identify and distinguish STEM models as they examine, engage in, and implement mathematical concepts, Standards for Mathematics Practices (SMPs), and Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices through the use of rich mathematical tasks. Participants will also apply pedagogical practices that help K-6 students develop discourse skills needed to authentically communicate in mathematics and help students develop the skills needed to integrate mathematics with other disciplines. Additionally, participants will model practices to build their capacity to create effective student-centered learning environments and instruction. An emphasis will be placed on authentic connections between mathematics and science, technology, and engineering design. (As Needed) [Graded (Standard Letter)]
