Mathematics in the Elementary School Curriculum: A Syllabus for a Field-Based Course.
Troxel, Vernon; Foreman, Jane
This syllabus was designed as an elementary school mathematics methods course and is used with interns in a Teacher Corps project at Oklahoma State University as a part of their practicum experience. The course is conceived as a blend of directed readings, seminars, independent study, workshops, and practica. The syllabus is divided into four parts. Part One provides background information on instructional planning, strategies, and evaluation to be used in conjunction with the remaining parts of the syllabus. Part Two provides information about concepts of number, addition, and subtraction. The intern is required to observe mathematics instruction in a primary grade classroom before undertaking study of this section. Part Three is designed to provide information about multiplication, division, and fractions; the intern is required to observe instruction in an intermediate or upper grade classroom before working on this section. Part Four deals with topics from geometry and measurement that are commonly included in the elementary school mathematics curriculum. Selected readings are included on building reading skills in the mathematics class and improving mathematics verbal problem-solving ability through reading instruction. (JD)
