MATH 312 - Elementary and Middle Grades Mathematics for Social Analysis

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Prerequisites: MATH 111  and MATH 112 , or permission of instructor.
The primary purpose of this course is to prepare future and current elementary and middle school teachers to critically analyze and explore the world using mathematics. Students will conduct meaningful and carefully reasoned real-world investigations and critiques using elementary and middle school mathematics, and also communicate the results of these problem-posing and problem-solving investigations both orally and in writing. This course examines the interplay among mathematical topics and integrates mathematics across the curriculum. Students are introduced to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards and to the Virginia Standards of Learning. Mathematical content emphases are also based on the NCTM Standards and include topics in number operations, algebraic thinking, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability.

Note(s): Students who have earned credit for MATH 315 may not subsequently earn credit for MATH 312.
