Course SyllabusCourse InformationCourse Number/Section ED 4V95 - 501Course Title Math Concepts for TeachersTerm Spring, 2007Days & Times Tuesday, 7:00 - 9:45Professor Contact InformationProfessor Julia HaunOffice Phone 972-883-2730Email Address [email protected] Location CBW 1.205Office Hours Tuesday, 5:45 - 6:45 or by appointmentOther Information Messages and assignments can be delivered to the Teacher Development Center, FN 3.118Course DescriptionThe primary objective of this course is to examine how to facilitate the learning of mathematics in grades Kindergarten through eight so that students are actively involved in their own learning. Teachers will be encouraged to become actively involved in visualizing mathematical concepts, solving problems, performing mental calculations, using manipulatives, and employing mathematical models to realize that mathematics is a way of thinking rather than a collection of rules. The content is designed to reflect the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Mathematics (TEKS), Grades K-8. The content and pedagogy for problem solving; whole numbers; number theory; integers; fractions and decimals; pre-algebra; probability; geometry; and measurement will be examined.Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes1. The student will analyze problem situations, create solutions strategies, solve problems, and justify his/her thinking.2. The student will hypothesize whether properties from one set of numbers will work for other sets of numbers and then validate his/her conjectures.3. The student will construct concepts of number, patterns, geometry, measurement, probability, and statistics through the use of exploration and investigation.TExES Domains and Competencies - This content of this course relates to the following domains and competencies assessed on the TExES (Texas Examination of Educator Standards) indicated.Generalist EC-4Domain II - Mathematics, Competencies 013, 014, 015Generalist 4-8 Domain II - Mathematics Competencies 010 - 025Course Syllabus Page 1Mathematics 4-8Domain 1 - Competencies 001-003Domain 2 - Competencies 004-007Domain 3 - Competencies 008-011Domain 4 - Competencies 012-014Domain 5 - Competencies 015-016 Required Textbooks and MaterialsRequired TextsAlbert B.

Participate in class.2. Complete all tests.Homework will be assigned for each section and reviewed at the beginning of each class. A weekly quiz will be given over the homework assigned and problems worked in class. The lowest two quiz grades will be dropped. Three examinations will be given. Each exam will reflect the content of the problems or activities that have been assigned or discussed as a part of the course and problems from the text chapter tests. Completion of the homework will be your best preparation for the exams. A comprehensive final exam will not be given. Test 3 will be administered in place of the final.Grading:Quizzes 100 pointsTest 1 100 pointsTest 2 100 pointsTest 3 100 pointsCourse Syllabus Page 3The cumulative point total for the quizzes and tests is 400 points. The following point scale will be used to determine the final grade.
