Math & Science
This course meets OSPI's STEM requirements.
Preschool teachers will learn how to teach activity centered, basic math concepts that meet national standards for early childhood students. It is possible for early childhood students to learn math skills in the areas of numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. Learn how to translate these standards into developmentally appropriate lessons that can provide a foundation that will best support your students’ learning. Apply mathematics using a variety of simple methods that are effective and will keep students engaged. You will walk away with classroom tools and resources to further promote the importance of math in the early childhood classroom.

When mathematics is taught with real-world lessons, students develop long-term conceptual understanding. The challenge for K-8 teachers is where and how to integrate these lessons. The three pedagogical practices of Problem-based learning, Project-based learning and Inquiry around five foundational skills for mathematics are key concepts. You will learn to create tasks rooted in a real-life connection to these concepts. Research suggests that a strong foundation in these areas is key for math success. $5 material fee due to instructor after registration
