Mathematics for Elementary Teachers (Math 108a). Adams State College.
Evans, Carlton; And Others
This document is one of a series of eight Teacher Education Modules developed by Adams State College Teacher Corps Program. As a result of completion of this module, which is itself a cluster of nine mathematics learning modules, the elementary education student will: a) gain a knowledge and understanding of the concept of elementary school mathematics; b) have a deeper understanding of the specific topics than would be expected of an elementary student; c) realize and appreciate the logical development of material from precise definitions based on intuitive concepts to facts derived from these concepts; d) increase his confidence in his own mathematical ability; e) see mathematics as a body of interdependent knowledge; and f) realize that mathematics proficiency in the mechanical processes of mathematics is not sufficient for the present-day student. Each module contains a statement of the underlying rationale; a statement of the objectives of the module; enabling activities, which are generally taken from other reference works; and procedures for evaluation. The topics of the modules include a) logic; b) set concepts; c) whole numbers and counting; d) operations on sets; e) binary operations; f) addition, subtraction, and inequalities of whole numbers; g) multiplication and division and the distributive properties of operations on the set of whole numbers; h) fractions; and i) geometric concepts.
