MAT 202 Math for Elementary Teachers II - Geometry, Measurement and Visualization
 Credit Hours:  3 Effective Term: Fall 2015 SUN#:  NA AGEC: Mathematics Credit Breakdown: 3 Lectures Times for Credit: 1 Grading Option: A/F Only Cross-Listed:

Description: Spatial visualization, measurement, geometry, proof, probability and data analysis using appropriate technologies and various strategies. Use physical models, technology and pattern-finding strategies to identify properties of and develop formulas for measuring two- and three-dimensional shapes. This course is designed to meet the requirements for prospective elementary education teachers.

Prerequisites: MAT141 or MAT151

Corequisites: None

4. (Analysis Level) Apply the Pythagorean Theorem and analyze the Pythagorean Theorem proof.
5. (Synthesis Level) Create geometric constructions.
6. (Synthesis Level) Apply geometry transformations to figures using symmetry, reflections, translations, and rotations to formulate conjectures.
7. (Synthesis Level) Solve problems from a variety of contexts using various strategies including technology.
8. (Application Level) Conduct probability experiments using concrete models and technology and interpret the results.
9. (Application Level) Use counting principles such as permutations, combinations and factorials.
10. (Evaluation Level) Find and interpret measures of central tendency (mean/weighted mean, median, mode), variability (range, variance, standard deviation), and rank (quartiles, percentiles, z-scores, stanines).
