MTH 1412 - Foundations of Mathematics II

Credits: 4
This course is designed for prospective elementary teachers and has two over-arching themes: (1) to investigate why mathematical operations and procedures work as they do in algebra, geometry, and probability and, in the process, to develop proficiency and an appreciation of the value of mathematics: and (2) to develop an ability to explain one’s reasoning clearly in written and spoken language. Individual and group problem-solving activities, pattern exploration, and model construction will provide students with a variety of opportunities to build their own deep understanding of foundational mathematical concepts and procedures. The topics to be covered are algebraic modeling; plane, solid, and spherical geometry; measurement; and probability and statistics.
Prerequisite(s): MTE 1410 and MTE 1411.
Fulfills: Q, STEM, and X in LS Core.
