MAT 111 Mathematics for Educators I
This course is the first of a two-course sequence of mathematics content courses (not methods course) designed to prepare students to teach elementary and middle school mathematics for understanding, as envisioned by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and as described in their document Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. The courses will examine deeply those topics in mathematics which are relevant for elementary and middle school teaching. MAT 111 focuses on problem solving and arithmetic including why standard algorithms work, properties of arithmetic, and applications of elementary mathematics. Prerequisite(s): Note: These courses (MAT 111 and MAT 112) only fulfill the core mathematics requirement for an elementary education major. These courses are not equivalent to either MAT 122 or MAT 141. 3 hour(s).
