MATH 121 - 01 Structures of Elem Math I M - W - F - - 0815 - 0920 OSS 333
CRN: 40230 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lisa M. Rezac An examination of the mathematical underpinnings of the K-8 school curriculum with an emphasis on the conceptual understanding of mathematics. Topics include foundations of integer and rational arithmetic, notions of place-value and base, number sense and estimation, ratio and proportion, and mathematical problem-solving. This course is recommended as the first course in a three-course sequence in mathematics for prospective elementary teachers, and fulfills the core area requirement in mathematics in Natural Science and Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning in the core curriculum. Offered fall and spring semesters. Prerequisites: MATH placement at or above 100 and one EDUC course (Click here for MaRC Placement Exam Information)
