Integrated Mathematics I for Middle and High School Teachers

Code:
MATH641
Credits:
3.0
MATH 641 is the first course in a sequence of four courses that integrates big topics of mathematics. The process of moving through these integrated topics of mathematics enables teachers to deepen their own understanding of math, make connections between the different topics within math, and make connections to what they will teach in their own classrooms. The intention is to simultaneously deepen understanding of mathematics while reminding graduate students of what it feels like to have productive struggle in a math class. This first integrated math course investigates the different ways to prove a conjecture, provides an introduction to group theory and number theory, and explores the connection between algorithms and computer science. Pending Approval of the Curriculum Committee.
