MTT 302 : Math for Elementary Teachers II: Reasoning About Algebra, Geometry and MeasurementCredits: 3 Course Description: This is one of two mathematics course proposed for prospective elementary school teachers. The course provides elements of the mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge needed to understand and teach mathematics in elementary school. For each mathematical topic the course provides multiple representations and multiple tools for understanding, communication and making connections within the mathematical content and among various ways of learning it. Relevant real life situations will be used to anchor the mathematical concepts and skills. The mathematical content of the course includes addressing Algebra as a symbolic language, as generalized arithmetic, as a study of structures and as a study of relationships among quantities. Graphing of linear and quadratic functions will anchor the study of change with a focus on the relationships among time, distance and rate. The study of Geometry will include 2 and 3 dimensional shapes and their characteristics, 2dimensional symmetry, similarity and tessellations as well as rigid transformations. The study of Measurement will include basic concepts of measurement with standard and non standard units and the measurements of angles, lines, area, surface area and volume. The study of measurements will culminate in the development of formulas for the measurement of various 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. PreRequisites: Math placement test A.
