Mathematics For Elementary Educators II – mth214 (3 credits)

This is the second course in a two-part series designed for K-8 pre-service teachers to address the conceptual framework for mathematics taught in elementary school. The focus of part two will be on measurement, geometry, probability and data analysis.

This undergraduate-level course is 5 weeks. This course is available to take individually or as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.

Introduction to Geometry

  • Apply characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes in problem solving.
  • Identify geometric figures and shapes based on mathematical arguments.
  • Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.

Applications of Geometry

  • Specify locations using coordinate geometry.
  • Describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry.
  • Use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations.

Applications of Measurement

  • Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.
  • Identify the relevant attributes of objects when solving problems.

Mathematical Connections

  • Synthesize the mathematics concepts addressed in this course.

Data Analysis and Probability

  • Apply basic concepts of probability.
  • Use appropriate statistical methods to analyze data.
  • Develop inferences and predictions based on data.
