MATH 1101 - Elementary Topics in Mathematics I

Elementary Topics in Mathematics I&II is a sequence for majors in elementary education and related fields. The course focuses on the development of arithmetic and number systems, including whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers. Probability and data analysis are studied as applications of rational numbers and emphasize mathematical representation and communication. Satisfies Tier I requirement for elementary education majors only. Does not apply to Arts and Sciences natural science requirements.

Requisites: (C or better in MATH D004 or MATH D005 or Math placement level 1 or higher) and (education or prim early childhood major)
Credit Hours: 3
General Education Code: 1M
Repeat/Retake Information: May be retaken two times excluding withdrawals, but only last course taken counts.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to justify and explain the meaning of concepts explored, and represent these concepts verbally, numerically, symbolically, and with concrete manipulatives.
  • Students will be able to describe and understand the relationships between sets, counting, cardinality, and one-to-one correspondence.
  • Students will be able to describe and understand the base-10 number system and its connection to place value.
  • Students will be able to construct the sets of natural, whole, rational, and irrational numbers and understand their properties.
  • Students will demonstrate proficiency with arithmetic operations on natural, whole, rational, and irrational numbers through standard and nonstandard algorithms.
