Course aims
Students have solid foundation of mathematical knowledge for teaching school mathematics in the area of numbers and operations.
Brief description of the course
Numbers and Operations: students understand basic concepts of numbers and operations and can model them in a variety of ways. Students understand the conceptual basis for the number systems—the relationships between and among whole numbers, integers, rational and real numbers. Students understand that the backbone of school mathematics is the real number system. They should be able to explain the reasoning behind the algorithms of rational number operations. They recognize the pervasiveness of proportionality across mathematical strands.
Independent work
Aquisition of neccessary subject knowledge, solving of problems and assignements
Learning outcomes in the course
Student teachers have a deep and broad knowledge of the concepts, principles, techniques, and reasoning methods of mathematics in the area of numbers and operations, and they are ready to use this knowledge to inform curricular goals and shape their instruction and assessment. Their knowledge encompasses not only the details, rules, and procedures of mathematics, but also the larger themes and connecting ideas that tie together its various strands.
