Includes probability and statistics, basic geometric concepts and measurement, constructions, congruence, similarity and transformations. Laboratory activities are included.
Introduction to statistical terminology and basic concepts, including common uses and misuses of statistics. Topics include experimental design, sampling, descriptive statistics, correlation and regression, probability, and tests of significance. This is a valuable course for students in all majors. This course satisfies the general education mathematics competency requirement.
An introduction to graph theory, logical operators, mathematical induction, enumeration and Boolean algebra. Students need to verify they have the prerequisites the first day of class.
A study of vector spaces, linear transformations, matrices, determinants and systems of equations. Special attention is given to the connection between linear transformations and matrices.
This course explores strategies for teaching math in secondary schools. A major focus of the class will be moving secondary students through enactive, iconic, and symbolic representation for concepts in the five major areas of math: algebra, functions, geometry, statistics/probability, and number/quantity. Other topics will include standards alignment, technology integration, and assessment. (See EDUC7657) Field Experience: 20 to 40 hours depending on endorsement areas.
