ECE 7740:The Early Preparation of the Mathematical Mind

2 Class Hours 3 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to Montessori Graduate Certificate program or M.Ed. program.
Students study the conceptual framework for the presentation of numeration and mathematical activities to young children. The use of Montessori materials that provide children with multiple opportunities to develop numeration skills, to understand the decimal system, and to practice the four operations with up to four digits is presented and practiced. In addition, students learn how to present commutative and squaring operations in ways that allow children to discover their unique characteristics. Finally, students learn to present numerous math activities and exercises with a wide variety of different, scientifically designed manipulable materials as well as present special memorization materials with which children can review and enhance their ability to recall all of the number facts they have assimilated from the previous activities. This course is aligned with the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). This course includes an extensive field experience. Verification of professional liability insurance is required prior to placement in the field.
