Current research in mathematics education highlights the importance of elementary teachers’ math content knowledge in carrying out their teaching duties. Math 385/489 is a two semester math content sequence required for all elementary education majors. It aims to provide the students with a deep understanding of the structures and concepts behind elementary mathematics. Both courses in the sequence are part of the IBL program in the math department and are taught using group work, student presentations, and projects. In Fall 2018, Math 385 will have two sections: MW 1:00-2:30 and MW 2:30-4:00. The core material in Math 385 is numbers and operations, place value, and fractions. Central objectives of the course include supporting students in using the meaning of numbers and operations in order to understand and justify why computational procedures work, and encouraging the development of problem solving skills.
Here is an example of a problem from this course: A school hallway has a row of lockers numbered 1 to 100. While cleaning the building over the summer, a janitor opens all of the lockers. Then the janitor closes every second locker (that is, those numbered 2, 4, 6, etc.), walks back to the start of the row, and changes every third locker: closing it if it is open and opening it if it is closed. In the next stage the janitor changes every fourth locker, and so on. At the last stage, the janitor changes every 100th locker (that is, only the last locker). Which lockers are open at the end?
Being a GSI for this course gives you the opportunity to think deeply about elementary mathematics. You will get a chance to engage with two of the big questions facing math teacher education: “what mathematics do elementary teachers need to know to be successful?” and “how do we best teach future teachers that mathematics?” This is a growing area of interest for math departments across the country and experience with this population (future elementary teachers) and their needs is desirable for many tenure track jobs.
The GSI will work closely with the instructor on all facets of the course in order to help meet student needs. Duties include but are not limited to the following: collaborate with instructor to revise worksheets and homework? contribute exam problems and help edit exams? attend classes to help facilitate group work? prepare and deliver some lessons? hold three office hours per week? assist with grading of homework and exams? meet with instructor regularly? administrative tasks (copying, etc.).
This is a 50% GSI position. The anticipated workload is 16.5-20 hours per week.
- Graduate student in good standing at the university
- Previous experience as a GSI, with favorable student evaluations
- Previous experience teaching courses in Mathematics
- Master’s in Mathematics
