PRESCHOOL MATHEMATICS

Course No. MA400n, MA500n

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.

The textbook, More Than Counting: Preschool and Kindergarten, Standards Edition, by Sally Moomaw is available used at Amazon for approximately $11.00.
