Humans and Computation
This course integrates fundamental mathematics concepts and relationships and computational skills required by the elementary or middle school teacher with problem-solving strategies and the use of technology. Students engage these concepts, relationships, and skills in terms of their development, mastery, and assessment. Anchored instruction and situated cognition techniques, expedited by video, laser video, and computer-based simulations, modeled during the course. The professional and assessment standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics are modeled throughout this course.
