This is a mathematics course for prospective and inservice teachers. It addresses the concepts of number and its operations as they occur in a comprehensive elementary and middle school mathematics curriculum using reasoning, problem solving, and technology to understand its historical development as well as its applications in the areas of geometry, measurement, and data and chance. Opportunities to see how number is essential to understanding other subject areas are included. This course can be used to eliminate a general education mathematics deficiency and/or used towards an endorsement in teaching middle school mathematics.
