1 MATH 2023 Foundations of Geometry and Measurement Fall 2010 Syllabus Instructor: Mrs. Jennifer Stone Telephone: (405) 974 5436 Office: Math and Computer Science 120 Email: jstone18@uco.edu Course Time(s): MWF 9:00am – 9:50am in the Center for Transformative Learning, Room 118 MWF 10:00am – 10:50am in CTL 118 MWF 11:00am – 11:50am in CTL 118 TR 5:45pm – 7:00pm in CTL 118 Office Hours: MWF 12:30pm – 1:30pm in MCS 120 TR 7:00pm – 7:30pm in CTL 118 or by appointment Required Text and Materials s Geometric Structures – An Inquiry-Based Approach for Prospective Elementary and Middle School Teachers by Douglas B. Aichele and John Wolfe. s Required manipulatives: protractor , compass , ruler , and a mira (or image reflector). You can get a protractor, compass, and ruler at Wal-Mart, Target, or Hobby Lobby. The mira can be found at the UCO bookstore. A geoboard can be helpful, but is not required; access to a classroom set will be available during class meetings only. You can also find miras and geoboards on the internet at http://www.etacuisenaire.com (search for "geo-reflector mira" and "double-sided geoboard" or "deluxe wood geoboard"). Other helpful supplies are tracing paper (or transparencies) and colored pencils . Prerequisite(s) No formal prerequisite is listed, but prior enrollment in MATH 2013, Structures of Mathematics, is highly recommended. This course is an extension of the problem solving strategies and skills of MATH 2013. Course Objectives Upon completion of the course, the student should: 1. have been introduced to basic concepts of geometry and measurement. 2. be enabled to think conceptually about mathematics and apply the concepts learned in real- world problem-solving situations. 3. have developed multiple perspectives and solution methods when dealing with mathematics. General Comments The content and instructional delivery of this course models the current professional thinking and standards endorsed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The value of this course will depend mostly on you - your involvement, effort, and creativity. As a point of beginning, you should become familiar with some necessary material:
