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.
Applications of Measurement
- Identify the relevant attributes of objects when solving problems.
- Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.
Introduction to Geometry
- Identify geometric figures and shapes based on mathematical arguments.
- Apply characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes in problem solving.
- 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.
- 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.
