Specific number sense topics include numeration systems, number theory, concepts of numbers and operations (whole numbers, integers, fractions, decimals, percents, and ratios), estimation, and proportional reasoning. Preservice teachers will invent strategies to solve computations.

MATH 120. Data & Space: Teaching Pre K-9. (3 Credits)

This course is the second course in a two-course sequence that presents an integrated approach to mathematics content and methods appropriate for early childhood, elementary, and middle school pre-service teachers. Emphasis is on constructing knowledge through problem solving, communication, reasoning, connecting mathematical ideas, representation, and generalization. Pre-service teachers will develop their conceptual understanding of ‘‘uncertainty’’ and ‘‘geometry’’. Topics include collecting, representing and analyzing data; concepts of chance; strategies for determining probability of events; functions; properties of 2-D and 3-D figures; transformations, similarity and symmetries; measurement systems; perimeter, area, volume, and surface area; and topology.
