BAST 325 - Math Methods

5 credits

Admission to the BAS-TE program.

This course is designed to deepen student understanding the developmental progression of mathematics learning, guide students in applying the fundamental principles, concepts and procedures related to mathematical problem-solving, exploration and reasoning including processes and skills related to using mathematical language to communicate relationships and concepts, adaptive reasoning, strategic competence, procedural fluency, and productive dispositions. Students will practice embedding CCSS-M Mathematical Practices in the instructional process to deepen understanding. Candidates will apply learning by developing lesson plans and curriculum units that align instruction and assessment with learning goals, identify a range of developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate instructional strategies, and incorporate methods that elicit student voice (including reflection related to learning targets, metacognitive strategies, and effective use of resources). This course will include opportunities to reflect on practicum observation.

Theory Hours
5 theory hours.

Course Outcomes
  • Understand the developmental progression of mathematical learning and apply/model the fundamental principles, concepts, and procedures related to mathematical problem solving
  • Develop an understanding of how students learn mathematics and of the pedagogical practices specific to mathematics teaching and learning while connecting mathematics with real-life problems through the use of mathematical modeling
