Understanding Counting and Numbers

Course Description:

Here is a unique opportunity to understand more about the ways your youngest students learn to count, recognize numerals, understand fractions, and learn about place value. Explore activities that support multiple intelligences, examine constructivist theories within the curriculum, and help students meet National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. Along the way, you will develop strategies to help students build counting skills and understand our number system. Finally, you'll create a lesson plan to teach the concepts of counting and numbers.
