EDMT 7570 Special Topics for Secondary Mathematics Education
Credit Hours 3.0
Prerequisites EDCI 7660
Corequisites EDCI 7680
Description

This course is designed for those who are preparing to become secondary mathematics teachers. Prospective teachers will revisit and extend their own mathematics knowledge as they develop specialized mathematics knowledge, skills, and ways of reasoning needed for teaching mathematics. The specialized mathematics knowledge is different from what it takes to pass a mathematics course as a student. The course is content rich. Prospective teachers will learn ways of understanding what their own students are doing mathematically, probe and make sense of their understanding, and develop ways to further scaffold for studentsÂ’ learning. Specifically, the course will provide prospective secondary mathematics teachers with content knowledge for teaching and how to apply such knowledge in their classrooms.
