ED 709 - Early Childhood Mathematics Development and Scientific Inquiry: Processes and Practices
Course Description:This course focuses on the development of mathematics and scientific inquiry from birth through grade 2, and the process for promoting this development in all children, who are culturally, linguistically, and ability diverse. Approaches to supporting children as they engage in investigation and discovery, use the scientific process, problem solve and reason, and develop quantitative thinking to make meaning of their world will be explored. Skills in understanding the essential concepts, inquiry tools, and structures of mathematics and science, and knowledge of resources for developing meaningful and challenging curriculum for all young children will be developed. This course provides an introduction to New York State standards and NAEYC developmentally appropriate practices in mathematics and science, and how to utilize DEC recommended practices in integrated, differentiated activities so all children can learn. Specific, evidence based methods, embedded within classroom, home, and community activities, and across curricular areas, will be analyzed so that emerging professionals, and the families they support, can assess and promote mathematics and science learning.
