Extractions: Home Page What is Mathematics? Major Unifying Themes in This Document ... "Dr. Dave" Moursund Click here for this Website's search engine. There are seven recurring and unifying themes in this Website document. Each provides opportunities for significant improvement in our math education system. This Webpage provides a short introduction to each of the seven themes, as well as clickable links that lead to more detail. Theme 1: Students Competing with ICT Systems. Our math education system spends an inordinate amount of time attempting to teach students to memorize procedures and develop both speed and accuracy in carrying them outthings that machines do much better than people. Theme 2: Students and Mathematical Developmental Theory. The content of significant parts of the current PreK-12 math curriculum is not appropriately aligned with what we know about developmental theory in general, and mathematics development theory in particular. Theme 3: Teachers Competing with ICT Systems.

Extractions: Elementary Math Curriculum Kindergarten 5th Grade 1st Grade 6th Grade ... 4th Grade KINDERGARTEN MATH CURRICULUM Course Purpose: The kindergarten program is to explore their world through the use of basic mathematic concepts and skills. Manipulatives create their classroom experiences. Estimation and prediction strategies are applied whenever possible to solve problems. The value and teachings of the Catholic Church should be integrated within this curriculum as much as possible. Some possible suggestions: 1. Go into the church and see how many shapes they can find. Make a graph of their findings. 2. Count religious items that are in the classroom (including items that the students could be wearing. Students will use whole number concepts to demonstrate one-to-one correspondence with the number sets. The student will: 1. read and order numbers in sequence to 100. 2. write numerals to 20. 3. compare sets and corresponding numeral as more, less, or equal to. 4. develop the concept and the process for addition to find the sum and for subtraction to find the difference of numerals to 10.

Extractions: Math 214: Principles of Elementary Mathematics ( 4 credits) Catalog Description This foundations course is designed primarily for presecondary education majors, for the purpose of developing a thorough understanding of and ability to use basic mathematics, including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and measurement. Topics include inductive and deductive reasoning, problem solving techniques, number properties and number theory, algorithms, mental arithmetic and estimation, proportional and algebraic reasoning, descriptive and deductive geometry, and measurement, including measurements specific to educational statistics. Mastery of elementary and middle school mathematics must be demonstrated. Every semester. Lecture 3 hours, laboratory 2 hours. Prerequisite: (a) completion of the general education mathematics requirement; (b) pre- or corequisite: any general education statistics course. Rationale This course, along with any mathematics course certified for general education, is to take the place of Math 115 and 116, the two courses currently offered specifically for elementary and special education majors. This change has been made for several reasons. First, some of the topics in Math 115 and 116 are being eliminated. A significant part of Math 116 includes topics in statistics and probability, subjects which all students will now take in a separate statistics course. In addition, a significant part of Math 115 includes a review of elementary mathematics topics, most at the level of Math 105 (our lower level developmental course). These topics will now be included on a mandatory skills test, for which there will be only a very limited amount of review. The elimination of these topics will significantly reduce the current content of these courses, creating the opportunity for a single 4-hour course.

Extractions: If your ADHD child struggles with math class, it may not be the subject as much as the way it is taught. Most people with ADHD are predominantly visual or tactile learners. This means they have an excellent visual memory (visual) or that they learn best through manipulating objects (tactile). In fact, many children with learning disabilities and/or ADHD have strengths in spatial awareness, logical thinking and reasoning. But if your child is presented with 20 or 30 math problems to do that merely require them to repeat the same computations over and over, they may balk, get bored and refuse to do the work, even though they would be capable of learning and doing far more difficult math concepts. Writing, even when it is numbers, is not usually a strength of ADHDers. But if you take those same children and give them play money, an abacus, counting beads, or fraction manipulatives AND help them understand why math is relevant in their lives today, not next year, not when they are grown you may find that these children excel at math. Amazingly, these children seem to understand complex mathematical concepts, like negative numbers, square roots, and powers more easily than they can memorize those basic math facts that are hammered in through repetition. They are not alone. Even Albert Einstein had trouble with simple math calculations; it was mathematical intuition that showed his genius. One good place to start with making math relevant is with money and helping your child come up with a savings plan for a desired toy or treasure. This gives the child motivation and relevance. You can help her comparison shop, using simple math to determine the price differences, and calculate whether the 3 hour drive to another city is worth saving 33 cents off the sticker price. Have him estimate how many weeks of allowance are needed to save for the item. What happens if she decides to spend half of her weekly allowance on other things; how much does that increase her savings time frame?

Extractions: Return to Program At lasts years Math EXPO, a presentation was made on plans to develop a series of Interdisciplinary Student Projects involving real-world scientific applications. This development was made possible through a Curriculum and Course Development Grant funded by NSF. The workshop presented this year will give the participants the opportunity to experiment with some of the projects that have been developed under the grant. The projects will include a study of the ozone layer, application of calculus to the detection of edges in a computer image, and concepts of calculus applied to genetics. Also included in the workshop will be presentations and discussions on the rationale for including interdisciplinary projects in mathematics courses. Participants will be encouraged to try out the materials and evaluate their suitability for instructional use.
