Description

Background and Goals: This course, together with its sequel Math 489, provides a coherent overview of the mathematics underlying the elementary and middle school curriculum. It is required of all students intending to earn an elementary teaching certificate and is taken almost exclusively by such students. Concepts are heavily emphasized with some attention given to calculation and proof. The course is conducted using a discussion format. Class participation is expected and constitutes a significant part of the course grade. Enrollment is limited to 30 students per section. Although only two years of high school mathematics are required, a more complete background including pre-calculus or calculus is desirable. Content: Topics covered include problem solving, sets and functions, numeration systems, whole numbers (including some number theory) and integers. Each number system is examined in terms of its algorithms, its applications, and its mathematical structure. The material is contained in Chapters 1--6 of Krause. Alternatives: There is no alternative course. Subsequent Courses: Math 489 (Math for Elem. and Middle Sch. Teach.) is the required sequel.
