MATH 1105 - Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers II: Data Analysis, Probability, & Algebra

This course is a continuation of MATH 1100 Mathematics for Elementary School Teacher I:  Number & Operations and is for prospective elementary school teachers.  Its primary focus is on the process of solving various problems through the use of algebra, the Fundamental Counting Principle, probability, and data analysis, and to prepare students to be competent in teaching these major concepts.  Emphasis continues to be placed on the development of problem solving skills and teaching in the context of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards.

Credits: 3

Minimum Student Competencies
Upon completion of MATH 1105 Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers II: Data Analysis, Probability & Algebra, the student will:

  1. Analyze patterns, relations, and functions using all four representations of narrative, tabular, graphical, and symbolic (in closed and recursive forms).
  2. Demonstrate multiple models and methods for number operations and applications within the set of real numbers.
  3. Develop skills in using algebraic notation to represent calculations, express identities, write equations, and solve problems.
  4. Apply the Fundamental Counting Principle, permutations, and combinations in the context of probability problems.
  5. Predict the probability of an event using theoretical and experimental probabilities.
  6. Organize data visually in a variety of ways.
  7. Analyze data appropriately using mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, upper and lower quartiles, or outliers.
  8. Express mathematical ideas precisely, both verbally and in writing.
  9. Utilize manipulatives to reinforce the content of the course within the context of the NCTM Standards.
  10. Critique published articles that deal with mathematics pedagogy.
