    EUT 215 - Step Two: Inquiry-Based Lesson Design in Mathematics

    [1 credit(s)]
    Prerequisites: EUT 201. This course will provide students with an opportunity to continue to explore mathematics teaching as a career through focused field experiences at the middle school level using inquiry-based instructional techniques. Participants build upon and practice inquiry-based lesson design skills that were introduced in EUT 201 and will also become familiar with exemplary mathematics curricula for the middle school setting. NB: Has a grades 6-8 field experience in addition to class meeting times.

    EUT 302 - Knowing and Learning in Mathematics and Science

    [3 credit(s)]
    Prerequisite or Corequisite: EUT 201. Must be admitted to the college as a declared major or minor and have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to be eligible for this course. The goal of this course is to develop a powerful tool kit of approaches to knowing and learning in mathematics and science. This course focuses on issues of what it means to learn and know science and mathematics including: 1) How knowing and learning are structured; 2) The tensions between general, cross-disciplinary characterizations of knowing (e.g., intelligence) and the specifics of coming to understand powerful ideas in mathematics and science; 3) Connections between kinds of assessments and theories of knowing; and 4) Various uses of technology associated with specific approaches to learning.

    EUT 305 - Classroom Interactions

    [3 credit(s)]
    Prerequisite: EUT 302. Must be admitted to the college as a declared major or minor and have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to be eligible for this course. This course continues the process of preparing future teachers to teach mathematics and science in secondary settings by providing opportunities to see how theories explored in EUT 302 play out in instructional settings. Students will design and implement instructional activities informed by their understanding of what it means to know and learn mathematics and science, and then evaluate the outcomes of those activities on the basis of student artifacts (i.e., what students say, do, or create). An important focus of the course is on building awareness and understanding of equity issues and their effects on learning, NB: Has an 40-hour 6-8 grade field experience in addition to weekly class meeting times.

    EUT 315 - Project-Based Instruction in Mathematics

    [3 credit(s)]
    Must be admitted to the college as a declared major or minor and have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to be eligible for this course. Must have taken EUT 305; co-requisite: EST 399. Project-based instruction engages learners in exploring authentic, important, and meaningful questions of real concern to students. This course also provides opportunities for candidates to gain experience in assessing, preparing, and teaching problem-based lessons through an extensive associated field experience (EST 399). Physical materials and strategies for teaching mathematics at the intermediate and secondary level are considered, as are student characteristics, teaching and learning styles, issues of equity and diversity and constructivist theories of learning.
