Organizing Learning Environments for Math is designed to offer Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and First Grade teachers a guide for designing a learning environment that they can adapt to their own classroom needs. Creating a learning environment that supports the development of understanding math concepts for young learners is critical. If lessons are developed to encourage and promote understanding, children will learn that mathematics makes sense and is applicable to their everyday needs. This course is designed to help teachers of primary children establish a classroom that is supportive of an active, meaning-based approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. The primary resources used in this course for standards are a combination of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and the California PreSchool Foundations. However, students are encouraged to use standards from their home state if desired. Focused questions are addressed and assistance is offered through these contacts between the instructor and student.
