As part of the Math for Future Elementary School Teachers class we’re teaching at the UW, we regularly ask our students to reflect on what they’re learning in the class.

The prompt: What do you think are the aims and goals of math education for grades K-2? Include topics, values, and outcomes.
What do you think?
