MAT117 - Math for Elementary Teachers 2
Catalog Description: Covers fundamental concepts of probability, statistics, measurement and geometry and the historical development of Mathematics. Develops understanding of mathematical concepts that form the foundation for topics included in the elementary mathematics curriculum and further develops creative problem-solving and mathematical communication skills. Prerequisite: MAT116.
Lecture: 3 hrs.
Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
Upon the successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:
1. Explain why it is important to use a truly random sample when gathering data about a population.
2. Explain how to take a random sample from a population.
3. Calculate the measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode).
4. Calculate the measures of dispersion (range, quartiles, variance, standard deviation).
5. Create visual representations of data (charts, graphs, etc.)
6. Use the appropriate "principle of counting" to compute the theoretical probability of an event.
7. Draw and label accurate examples of a variety of geometric figures.
8. Draw images resulting from transformations (translation, reflection, rotation, glide translation, dilation).
9. Solve problems with ratios and rates using proportions.
10. Analyze the connection between selected learning activities and the NCTM Standards for School Mathematics.
