MATH 1102 - Elementary Topics in Mathematics II


This is a continuation of MATH 1101. Elementary Topics in Mathematics I and II develop mathematical topics usually taught in grades preK-5 to a depth required for future elementary educators (and related fields) to establish professional expertise. The courses are taught through an inquiry approach that focuses on problem solving and discussion. Key themes include 1) explaining and justifying standard and nonstandard algorithms for basic arithmetic operations learned in grades preK-5; 2) students’ construction and critique of their own ideas and others’ ideas; and 3) using manipulatives to represent and justify algorithms. Topics include ratios and proportional reasoning, foundations of number theory, algebraic reasoning, and measurement. Properties of two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometric objects are explored. Does not apply to Arts & Sciences Natural Science requirements.
