MATH 5375. CONSTRUCTING WHOLE NUMBER ANDOPERATIONS IN K-8 MATHEMATICS. 3 Hours.
A study of the interaction between the structure of place-value numeration systems and the nature of the four arithmetic operations. The development of traditional and alternative computational arithmetic algorithms from conceptual and concrete models for operations, viewed through the lens of alternative numeration systems and research on children's mathematical thinking. Assignments require interaction in K-8 field settings. Prerequisite: graduate standing.
