Courses - MTED Lower Division

Satisfying the Entry‑Level Math (ELM) requirement (see "Undergraduate Programs" section of this catalog) is a prerequisite for all mathematics education courses.

110. The Real Number System for Elementary and Middle School Teachers (3)

Prerequisite: ELM or ELM exemption or MAPB 11.
Introduction to problem solving processes and strategies. Development and analysis of structure, properties, and operations of real number system. Concept and process development using appropriate models, manipulatives, and activities.
Not open for credit to Mathematics majors. (Lecture 2 hrs., activity 2 hrs.)

205. Activity Based Probability and Statistics for Elementary and Middle School Teachers (3)

Prerequisites: ELM or ELM exemption or MAPB 11 and MTED 110.
Activity-based exploration of randomization, data representation, measures of central tendency and dispersion. Analysis of experiments requiring hypothesizing, experimental design and data gathering. Basic laws of probability and set theory, combinations, permutations, and simulations.
Letter grade only (A-F). (Lecture 2 hrs., activity 2 hrs.) Not open for credit to mathematics (all options) and statistics majors or for students with credit in MTED 105.

211. Geometry and Measurement for Elementary Teachers (3)

Prerequisites: MTED 110 with a grade of "C" or better and one year of high school geometry.
Problem solving and hands-on modeling of real-world geometry situations focusing on patterning, informal geometry, congruence, similarity, constructions, transformations, tessellations, measurement in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions (English and Metric units). Computer applications are integrated into the course.
Not open for credit to Mathematics majors or any student with credit in MTED 312. (Lecture 2 hrs., activity 2 hrs.)
