MAED 3002 - Connections in Secondary Mathematics

Credits: 3

This course blends the mathematics of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, statistics, and discrete mathematics. Connections in Secondary School Mathematics course bridges connections of all sorts: those between different mathematical areas; mathematics and science; mathematics and other subject areas; and mathematics and the real world of people, business and everyday life. The course integrates technology through the use of graphing calculators and computers, which students use to make conjectures; validate findings; and investigate concepts, problems, and projects in greater depth. The emphasis on writing and the use of alternative types of assessment in this course is designed to help the student teachers to adapt their teaching strategies in order to meet every student’s need.
