MTH-2100 - Concepts of Mathematics for Teachers (4)

Prerequisite: MTH 1080  and completion of 24 credits

Elementary education students investigate concepts commonly found in elementary/middle school mathematics curriculums. Topics include numbers (natural, integers, and rational), mathematical systems, numeration, algorithms, and number theory. Emphasis is placed upon the understanding of core concepts, gaining knowledge of mathematics’ contribution to thinking, and the development of cognitive thinking skills for solving non-trivial problems. The philosophy expressed in mathematics reform and especially in the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics is integrated throughout all aspects of the course. Each student is required to visit elementary or middle school classrooms to observe mathematics lessons and may be required to work outside of class with classmates to complete some assignments or to work in the computer learning lab. Students are advised not to take this course as their first mathematics course.
