1. This is the secondcourse in a two semester sequence designed to increase the prospective teacher’s understanding of the mathematical concepts used in the elementary classroom 2. The purpose is to strengthen the student’s appreciation and understanding the basic structures of arithmetic and its uses 3. To provide the mathematical concepts needed to teach the “new approaches” found in a modern arithmetic curriculum 4. To give the prospective elementary teacher the necessary confidence as well as knowledge for elementary school mathematics 5. The purpose of the laboratory setting is to provide the necessary concrete experiences to help students develop and understand the abstract mathematical principles.
