mathematics teacher education

This class focuses on the mathematical content knowledge teachers and parents need in order to teach elementary and middle school mathematics. Students will develop their content knowledge in number theory (base-ten and place value, whole number operations, fractions, fraction operations, factors and multiples, proportional reasoning) and Algebra (algebra as generalized arithmetic, algebraic manipulation, linear and non-linear functions). Through this mathematical content and an examination of the Common Core State Standards, students will develop their own mathematical thinking, reasoning, and justification skills.


This program is appropriate for students who intend to enroll in The Evergreen State College Master in Teaching Program or other teacher education programs and current teachers and parents who wish to further develop their understanding of mathematics.
