MATH 301

Mathematics for Secondary Teachers

Units: 3

A survey of foundations of mathematics essential to the secondary
school teacher, this course integrates secondary mathematics concepts
with problem-solving strategies and technology. Students expand on
their understanding of core math concepts, evaluate lesson plans used
in secondary school mathematics, discuss and reflect on effective
mathematics pedagogy, analyze readings in the field, engage in collegial
interactions with the instructor and fellow students, and develop a
repertoire of classroom-tested lessons that can be used in a high
school classroom.
