This summer course aims to provide incoming students with the tools needed to be successful wherever they place in the calculus sequence. Specific content is tailored to individual students, based on their existing skill set and expected entry point in the calculus sequence, but ranges from algebra and trigonometry to the real analysis which underlies calculus. The course emphasizes teamwork, communication skills, growth mindset, self-assessment (e.g., metacognition) and building a community of scholars. This is achieved through evidence-based, student-centered pedagogical practices such as collaborative and active learning, scaffolded instruction, extensive group work, metacognitive reflections, and exploratory projects and presentations.
Fundamental concepts of arithmetic and geometry, including problem solving, number systems, and elementary number theory. For elementary and special education teacher certification candidates only. A student who has passed EDMTH 444 may not take MATH 200 for credit. MATH 200 Problem Solving in Mathematics (3) (GQ) This is a course in mathematics content for prospective elementary school teachers. Students are assumed to have successfully completed two years of high school algebra and one year of high school geometry. Students are expected to have reasonable arithmetic skills. The content and processes of mathematics are presented in this course to develop mathematical knowledge and skills and to develop positive attitudes toward mathematics. Problem solving is incorporated throughout the topics of number systems, number theory, probability, and geometry, giving future elementary school teachers tools to further explore mathematical content required to convey the usefulness, beauty and power of mathematics to their own students.
