Courses

      • MATH 1308-500 ELEMENTARY STATISTICAL ANALYSIS

        Topics may include collection, analysis, presentation, and interpretation of data. Analysis includes descriptive statistics, probability, relationships between variables and graphs, elementary statistical models, hypothesis testing, inference, estimation, correlation, regression and confidence intervals. The use of mathematical software and calculators is required.

      • MATH 1330-002 ARITHMETICAL PROBLEM SOLVING

        This course is designed to prepare future elementary school teachers mathematically to teach math (as opposed to pedagogically, which is the goal of ECED/BEEP 4311 and EDML 4372). It does this in two main ways: by teaching math which is relevant (not identical) to the math they will be teaching, and by modeling a math classroom through problem-solving activities, cooperative groups, and holding students responsible for deciding (reasoning) what is correct.   Problem solving, operations, numeration systems, patterns and inductive reasoning, number theory, fractions, and number representations are the topics that will be studied.

      • MATH 1332-001 FUNCTIONS, DATA, AND APPLICATIONS

        This course is designed to prepare future elementary school teachers mathematically to teach math (as opposed to pedagogically, which is the goal of ECED/BEEP 4311 and EDML 4372). It does this in two main ways: by teaching math which is relevant (not identical) to the math they will be teaching, and by modeling a math classroom through problem-solving activities, cooperative groups, and holding students responsible for deciding (reasoning) what is correct.   This course focuses on data analysis (including some introductory statistics and probability), modeling with functions, and introductory computer modeling.

      • MATH 4350-001 PRECALCULUS FOR MID-LEVEL MATHEMATICS TEACHERS

        This course serves to bridge the gap between algebra and calculus for middle level teachers.  It will develop a firm understanding of the concept of function, how to graphically represent various functions, analyze their behavior and create new functions from old.  Functions will be used to model real-life situations. 

        The course will focus on the essential elements of precalculus, as given by the TEKS.  It will develop the foundations of functions and explore functions as a unifying theme.  This includes transformations, inverses, logarithmic, power, polynomial, rational, and trigonometric functions.  There will be an emphasis on multiple representations of mathematical ideas: verbal, concrete, pictorial, tabular, symbolic, and graphical.  Throughout, the mathematical connections between precalculus and school mathematics will be highlighted.

      • MATH 1331-002 GEOMETRICAL INFERENCE AND REASONING

        This course is designed to prepare future elementary school teachers mathematically to teach math (as opposed to pedagogically, which is the goal of future elementary education courses). It does this in two main ways: by teaching math which is relevant (not identical) to the math they will be teaching, and by modeling a math classroom through problem-solving activities, working in cooperative groups and holding students responsible for deciding (reasoning) what is correct.   Basics of geometry, constructions, polygons, tessellations, polyhedra, symmetry, rigid motion, and measurement are the topics that will be studied.
