Students will develop the skills necessary to effectively teach mathematics at the elementary school level. Topics of study will include problem solving, operations in the base-ten whole number system (as well as other bases), operations with fractions, operations with integers, operations with decimals and percents, relations and functions, estimation, number theory, and ratios and proportions. While there will be review of the basic mathematics used at the elementary school level, the emphasis of this course will be for students to understand why those mathematical procedures work and how to construct appropriate lessons and activities to illustrate the ideas to elementary students using a variety of concrete methods. Prerequisites: ENG 1510 and fulfillment of the math requirement in the student's degree program, and sophomore standing. Master Course Syllabus
