The underlying purpose of the course is to develop teacher candidates’ awareness and understanding of theories, research, and methodologies that can be applied to the teaching of mathematics in the junior grades (4-6). While the course focuses on the content and expectations of the Ontario curriculum, its overall purpose is to expose teacher candidates to important topics in math education that are of concern to math teachers nationally and internationally such as: nature of math; mathematical literacy; teaching mathematics to all students; constructivist approaches; developmental aspects; and the use of technology in teaching math. The course will also nurture an appreciation for the order revealed by mathematical relationships within the structures of creation and imbue candidates with a sense of intrigue and excitement about teaching and learning mathematics.
