MT101ECB|S1 2023/24 Mathematics in EC 1

Mathematics comprises five strands that are highly interconnected.  In this course, we will study two of these strands:  numbers and algebra.  The content covered in this course will be done to the 6th grade level. In order for the student teachers to teach mathematics at the early childhood level they must know more than they will be teaching and have a deeper understanding of the material.  This course is aimed at the Grade 6 level, three grades above what they will be expected to teach.  The course integrates important mathematical ideas so that student teachers can see many connections and develop new understanding and skills.  The placement of this course within the programme allows teachers to learn the content before they learn how to teach.
