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.
Lay the foundation that your students will build on to meet mathematical standards for years to come. Learn to teach "mental arithmetic" to enhance your students' understanding of addition and subtraction. Develop your understanding of computational strategies by observing students, exploring lesson plans, and examining Web resources.
