MATH1345 Elements of Math II

Course Description

This is the second of two courses designed to provide the necessary foundation for students interested in elementary education licensure. This course explores mathematics with activities to help students investigate mathematical properties and relate mathematical ideas in discrete math, geometry, probability, and statistics. Problem solving, modeling, and explaining mathematics will be emphasized in all topics. This is the second of two courses designed to provide the necessary foundation for students interested in elementary education licensure. This course is also open to non-education majors.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Explain the basic mathematical concepts that form the foundation of
    statistics, probability, discrete math, and geometry.
