MAT 112 Mathematics for Educators II
This course is the second 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 112 focuses on problem solving and geometry including why various standard formulas and properties in geometry are valid. Prerequisite(s): MAT 111 . 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).
