Fundamental Concepts of Mathematics II: Geometry, Algebra, Functions, Data Analysis, and Probability

(3 0 cr.) - Session(s): Fall | Course Every Year

The second course intended for prospective elementary teachers continues an in-depth introduction to mathematical concepts focusing on student understanding and communication. Topics include geometric concepts (shape and space, area and volume, transformations and symmetry), algebraic concepts (patterns, equations, and functions), and statistical concepts (designing investigations, gathering & analyzing data, and basic probability). The course will utilize investigative activities and instructional technology. Emphasis is on developing a deep understanding of the fundamental ideas of elementary school mathematics and transitioning from inductive to deductive reasoning. Does not apply toward the math/science general education requirement for graduation. Prerequisites: MAT-160 and (MAT-175 or MAT-181 or MAT-191). Does not apply toward the mathematics major or mathematics minor.
