MATH& 132 - Mathematics for Elementary Education 2

5 credits

A grade of “C” or better in MATH 097  or appropriate placement score.

MATH& 132 is the second of two courses that are designed to fulfill the requirements for entry into a bachelor’s program in elementary education at a four year university. The major objective of this course is to prepare the prospective K-8 teacher to understand elementary school mathematical concepts taught from kindergarten through the eighth grade. MATH& 132 focuses on geometric figures, measurement, probability and statistics. In conjunction with studying these topics, students will improve their abilities to recognize patterns and make connections to the mathematical ideas explored. Each student will be expected to justify his or her reasoning and communicate the results through such means as group activities, written discussions, oral presentations and/or other methods.

Theory Hours
5 theory hours.

Course Outcomes
  • Apply concepts of basic geometry to solve real world applications. 
  • Apply standard and non-standard measurement skills to geometric concepts in two and three dimensions. 
  • Perform unit conversions in and between the Metric system and US customary units.
  • Apply concepts of statistics to gather appropriate data, organize information in charts or graphs, and interpret information from displays of data.
  • Apply problem solving counting techniques, calculate probabilities and odds using both theoretical and empirical probability.

Students who complete both MATH& 131  and MATH& 132 will satisfy the quantitative skills requirement (MATH& 131 ) and be granted 5 credits of specified elective.
