MAT 121 Mathematics for Elementary Teachers II (3)


MAT 120  
This course prepares STEM-focused elementary teachers by investigating functions, geometry, statistics and probability. This course begins with an investigation of functions with geometric applications.  The study of geometry begins with examination of the basic shapes of one, two, and three dimensions and is followed by an investigation of the basic ways these shapes can be transformed: translation, reflection, and rotation.  The study of basic measurement including length, area, surface area, and volume.  Next an examination from ratios, rates, and proportions, leads to an understanding of percentages, uncertainty, and chance.  This is followed by the study of basic statistics emphasizing measures of central tendency, variance, and ways of organizing data completes the content of this course. This course sequence is intended to prepare students for formal admission to the Department of Education.
