ITL516 Mathematics Integrative Design

Course Description

Analysis of how elementary children think and learn mathematics. Research-based approaches enabling students to think critically and develop math proficiency. Developmentally appropriate instructional strategies for an integrative approach to teaching mathematics using content areas of visual and performing arts, social science, and STEM.

Learning Outcomes

  • Design an integrative approach to mathematics instruction utilizing how K-8 students' acquire mathematical knowledge and misconceptions, learners' preconceptions, multiple instructional methods, and meta-cognitive strategies.
  • Synthesize a variety of evidence-based strategies used to design an integrative approach to teaching mathematics and representing conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and multi-level instructional practices needed to engage K-8 students with diverse learning needs.
  • Analyze an integrative approach to teaching mathematics, representing instructional practices and procedures needed o support a spiraled curriculum, foundational skills, progress monitoring, and developmentally appropriate adaptations and modifications for all learners.
  • Design integrative mathematics instruction using principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and the Learning Map model and reflecting an approach using culturally, developmentally appropriate, and linguistically based strategies to engage diverse elementary school learners.
  • Reflect on instructional practices and beliefs needed for designing an integrative approach to teaching mathematics and ensuring for all learners socially-emotionally thriving and meaningful academic achievement within an equitable, inclusive learning environment.
