MATH 291 - Mathematics for Secondary Teachers
This course was designed to enhance the conceptual and procedural understandings of the mathematics that is taught at the secondary level—number theory, algebra, geometry, functions, probability and statistics. Concepts and problems will be viewed from an advanced perspective where the students will investigate alternate definitions and approaches to mathematical ideas; consider proofs, extensions and generalizations of familiar theorems; investigate multiple approaches to problem solving, and study connections between topics from different courses. Understanding and communication of mathematical concepts and processes will be emphasized; the use of technology and manipulatives will be used when appropriate. This course will not serve as an upper-level mathematics elective for the major or minor in mathematics.
Prerequisite(s): MATH 253, grade of C or better.
