Course Objectives The aim of this course is to maket he students learn different approaches related to development of mathematical thinking during pre-school period, basic teaching principles that need to be taken into consideration in preschool education to teach visual and mental mapping, and the basic concepts of mathematics that should be thought during preschool education (count, multiplicity, procedures with natural numbers, measurement and related concepts, basic geometric shapes, etc.), in addition to make activities to create activity samples by using this information.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Apply mathematical skills according to development and age.
  • Teach basic mathematical concepts.
  • Apply procedures in preschool education.
  • Explain the features of space, geometry and geometric shapes to preschool children.
  • Organize mathematical program for preschool period.
  • Organize mathematical program for preschool period.
Course Description This course contains the issues related to developing basic mathematical thinking skills and problem-solving skills in preschool students.
