Description of the Course:
Mathematics 12
, Number Systems,
is the first course in a threecourse sequence designed for prospective
elementary teachers of mathematics.
In each of the three courses, you will explore and develop
understanding of mathematical concepts and processes taught at the elementary and middle school levels.
In Math 12, in particular, you will study problem solving techniques, numeration systems, the structure of
the real number system, and elementary number theory.
Technology will be used as appropriate.
Note:
This is the first course in a threecourse sequence of mathematics courses for future elementary and
middle school teachers.
