Development of a connected, well balanced view of mathematics; interrelationship of patterns, relations, and functions; applications of proportional and algebraic reasoning in mathematical situations and structures using contextual, numeric, symbolic and graphic representations; written communication of mathematics. C O U RS E P U R P O S E A N D G O A L S: MATH 2203 builds on the foundation of mathematics concepts of problem solving, number and operations, measurement and geometry developed in MATH 1201 and MATH 1202. (Prior completion of these two courses is required.) Concurrent enrollment in EDCI 3124 (Mathematics Theory and Practice in the Elementary Grades) and EDCI 3125 (Elementary and Middle School Science) is required, since there are numerous crossovers in terms of content, pedagogy, fieldwork experiences, and supervision. The student will: increase knowledge, understanding, and application of algebraic and proportional reasoning develop the mathematical processes of “finding, describing, explaining, and predicting” through the use of patterns and functions use multiple representations (contextual, tabular, numeric, symbolic and graphic) to understand and make connections among mathematical concepts understand how math concepts evolve from concrete examples to generalizations expressed by function rules understand and analyze change in various contexts develop proportional reasoning skills by comparing quantities, looking at relative ways numbers change, and thinking about proportional relationships in linear functions. develop conceptual understanding of important mathematical principles, their interrelationship, and their vertical development E L E M E N T A R Y S C H O O L SI T E -B A S E D M A T H E M A T I C S C A S E S T U D Y : MATH 2203 includes required site-based lab/field experience in K-5 mathematics classrooms. This will occur at local public elementary schools. There will be a specific assignment of school, teacher, classroom, days, and times. Additional information will be given in class.

The material will be presented in an interactive manner that is important in the learning process. A daily assessment will be given and there will be no make-ups if you are not present. All out of class assignments are due at the assigned class time and points will be deducted if they are late. Please have all cell phones on silent/vibrate and have them out of sight during class. Computers (unless being used for this class), materials for other classes, and other unrelated materials should also be put away so that you may participate fully in this class. A C A D E M I C H O N EST Y : All students are responsible for adhering to the highest standards of honesty and integrity in every aspect of their academic careers. The penalties for academic dishonesty can be severe and ignorance is not an acceptable defense at Louisiana State University.

If your lab/field experience is scheduled at a different time, please make sure the class times remain reserved for your attendance in class if schedules are changed.
