HONR 312 HONR RESRCH/CREATIVE PROJ (Fall 2019)Develop a research or creative project suitable for presentation at an undergraduate research conference or equivalent public venue. Work one-on-one with a faculty mentor from a department of the student's choosing and with Honors administrative faculty to complete and present the independent project. Prerequisites: Admission to Honors Program. One hour per week. (P/F)MATH 130 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS I (Fall 2019)For prospective elementary school teachers, the course provides a thorough understanding of the mathematical concepts covered in grades one through eight. Moves through the mathematical content into the ability to explain the mathematical ideas and relationships. Emphasizes the ability to explain the concepts in everyday language appropriate for the listener, using correct vocabulary, and the ability to demonstrate these ideas using physical models and/or activities. Use of technology is required. Includes non-routine problem solving. May not receive credit for both MATH 103 and MATH 130. Three hours per week each. Does not meet General Education requirements.MATH 230 FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS II (Fall 2019)Continuation of the process begun in MATH 130 of preparing prospective elementary school teachers to teach mathematics. Like MATH 130, it fosters a thorough understanding of fundamental mathematics and emphasizes the ability to communicate this understanding effectively. Cannot receive credit for both MATH 104 and 230. Prerequisites: MATH 130 completed with a C or better. Three hours per week. Meets General Education IVB or IVC (Prior to Fall 2008: IIIB or IIIC).MATH 430 MATH CNNECTN SEC SCH TCHRS (Fall 2019)Connection of the undergraduate mathematics curriculum to the secondary mathematics curriculum by examining high school curriculum topics from an advanced and historical perspective. Contributions from diverse cultures as students examine the historical development of numbers and number systems, algebra, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, calculus, discrete mathematics, statistics, probability, and measurement. Prerequisites: SCED 373 and MATH 441 or MATH 451. Four hours per week.MATH 531 MATH CNNCTNS SEC SCH TCHRS (Fall 2019)Connects the undergraduate mathematics curriculum to the secondary mathematics curriculum by examining high school curriculum topics from an advanced and historical perspective with the goal of deepening understanding of the mathematics required for teaching in secondary schools. Considers contributions from diverse cultures in the examination of the historical development of numbers and number systems, algebra, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, calculus, discrete mathematics, statistics, probability, and measurement. Prerequisite: Mathematics teaching experience. Four hours per week.
