Math 6302: Mathematical Foundations of the Common Core LaMSTI/CART MNS Degree Program, Summer 2011 Instructors James Madden, 213 Prescott Hall, madden@math.lsu.edu Ameziane Harhad, 104 Lockett Hall, aharhad@math.lsu.edu Teaching Assistants: Kimberly Sevin D'souza, 363 Lockett Hall, ksevin2@lsu.edu Lokendra Singh Thakur, 343 Lockett Hall, lthaku1@lsu.edu Course web site: https://www.math.lsu.edu/~madden/M6302summer2011/index.html This course is offered in the first summer of the LaMSTI and CART MNS Degree programs for three (3) semester hours of credit under the internal designation Mathematical Foundations of the Common Core . Catalog description 6302 Implementing the NCTM Standards II (3) May be taken for a max. of 9 sem. hrs. of credit when topics vary. Enrollment is restricted to participants in the teacher-training and grant-supported programs. Topics for mathematics teachers (6-8) to be selected from those in the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Comment. The NCTM Standards are no longer as important in setting the agenda for mathematics education as they were when this course description was composed. A petition to revise the course description is being filed, which will remove the reference to NCTM and refer instead to “nationally recognized standards.’’ We will use the Common Core State Standards as a basic reference for all work in this course. Implementation for MNS This 3-credit-hour course focuses on the algebra and geometry presented in middle-school and high-school (including dual-credit courses), examined from mathematical, curricular and pedagogical perspectives. Topics include: functions (linear, quadratic, polynomial and exponential), coordinates and analytic geometry, Euclidean geometry, and modeling. Format: The course is delivered over a period of six weeks in the summer. Students spend 3 to 4 hours per day for a total of at least 26 days. The time is allocated as follows: o 1/3 Lecture & activity-based learning, o 2/3 Seminar (extended investigations of mathematical topics). Integration with Algebra Lab. Students in M6300 will enroll simultaneously in a section of M4999, and their assignment in M4999 will include 1.5 hours per day devoted to studying the LSU College Algebra Course, which is delivered on the MyMathLab platform. Assignments in this course will be coordinated
