Prerequisite: MATH 2008 MATH 3011 is designed to prepare students to teach geometry up to grade level 6. MATH 3011 is a content course that gives prospective teachers a deeper understanding of geometry and measurement. This course may not be used to satisfy degree requirements for students majoring in Mathematics. Upon completion of this course students will be able to: (1) demonstrate mathematical creativity and critical thinking by applying geometric understanding to solve a variety of mathematical problems using multiple representations; (2) interpret and use mathematical language appropriately; (3) use appropriate technology in the evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of information in problem-solving situations; (4) use geometric applications and procedures to present methods, results, and conclusions both in written and oral form; (5) analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships; (6) specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems; (7) apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations; (8) use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.
Course prerequisite: Admission to Teacher Education and SPED 3100 and 3300 Course co-requisite: READ 3600 Largely field-based, this course focuses on the design and delivery of developmentally appropriate instruction in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, health, and physical education in grades P-12 for students with exceptionalities. This includes meeting the student¿s physical, medical, social, emotional and communication needs as well as their academic requirements. Topics to be addressed include group and individual learning environments, behavior management techniques, appropriate utilization of technology, placement options and alternatives, and instructional strategies. Working in coordination and collaboration with the home, general education teachers, related service providers, and community organizations and agencies will be a focus in terms of identifying, designing, and delivering appropriate academic and non-academic accommodations and interventions for students of all backgrounds. Under the supervision of a qualified classroom teacher, candidates will learn to plan and implement developmentally appropriate and culturally inclusive instruction based on knowledge of individual students, the community, and the curriculum goals. Candidates will demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental concepts of each discipline as well as a developing ability to translate this knowledge into meaningful learning experiences for exceptional students through the design, delivery, and evaluation of lessons. This course will also explore the roles and responsibilities of other professionals in classroom instruction and prepare candidates to plan and direct collaborative instruction.
Prerequisites: MATH 0098 A course designed to be a bridge between Student Success mathematics and college-level mathematics. It is divided into two components. Component 1 is individualized, self-paced instruction on selected topics as determined by results from a diagnostic test covering topics from MATH 0097 and MATH 0098. Component 2 introduces new topics including graphing calculator usage, concepts of functions and their graphs; equations and graphs of circles and parabolas; solving systems of equations in two variables; rational, polynomial, and absolute value inequalities. *Institutional load credit only.
