Offered: Spring

A continuation of MATH 201; additional topics include rational numbers, real numbers, topics in geometry, and elementary logic. An emphasis will be placed on understanding mathematical concepts and developing strategies for teaching such concepts. The lab experiences will utilize NCTM Standards to discover relationships, generalities, and problem solving through the use of manipulatives and technology, which coincide with specific content with innovative strategies, reflected through a well-developed lesson plan. Students will analyze various learning theories and provide hands-on exercises to evoke effective teaching practices through lesson plan design. A field experience of 5 hours is required. Lecture: three credit hours; lab: one credit hour.
