Early Number, Addition and Subtraction (grades K - 4)

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 effectie, efficient, and accurate problem-solving strategies that children can use to master addition and subtraction. We'll discuss the roll of the standard algorithm in a standards-based mathematics classroom and consider the teacher's role in helping children develop computational fluency. In additional, we will examine mathematical ideas central to addition and subtraction, thereby deepening our own mathematical content knowledge.
