This course involves an investigation of problems that span a variety of mathematics domains with a focus on making and evaluating mathematical arguments, using tools such as manipulatives and technology, identifying and analyzing the connections among the mathematics concepts underlying different solution strategies, and using symbols and representations to communicate mathematical ideas.
This course is intended to be the first graduate level course in the Master of Science in Mathematics--Curriculum Content degree. Prerequisites include experience teaching middle or high school mathematics, and/or certification in middle or high school mathematics. It is expected that students will have a major or minor in mathematics or the equivalent. Review of transcripts may suggest that leveling courses will be needed.
