Early Number, Addition, and Subtraction

Focus on: Grades K - 4
Course Number: TEED650N

How do children develop computational strategies to help them add and subtract? This course explores how children make sense of these operations. Through video clips and student work samples, we'll examine effective, efficient, and accurate problem-solving strategies that children can use to master addition and subtraction. We'll discuss the role of the standard algorithm in a standards-based mathematics classroom and consider the teacher's role in helping children develop computational fluency. In addition, you will examine mathematical ideas central to addition and subtraction, thereby deepening our own mathematical content knowledge.
