SJSU Math 12 Sections 1 and 2
1Chapter Learning Activities and Problems (LAPs)
Brief Summary:
These assignments will form the core of your learning experiences in this class.
Either
individually or in groups, you will work on readings, learning activities, and problems from the textbook.
These
assignments will require significant time management on your part and regular reflection on your mathematical
learning and growth.
The extent of your learning is entirely up to you.
A minimal amount of work is expected to be
turned in, but much more will be required if you desire a strong understanding of the mathematics to support your
future work as a teacher.
Purpose:
The purpose of these assignments is to provide you with rich and varied experiences that will help you
understand
why
the mathematics you learned in grade school makes sense,
how
you can communicate that
understanding to other students, and how to relearn these things when you become a teacher.
My hope is that these
experiences will help you develop confidence in your mathematics knowledge and your learning abilities.
