MATH 122 - Mathematical Concepts and Structures

Number of Credits: 4
Examine concepts and principles of mathematics in elementary and early childhood education such as  numeration systems, applications of the problem-solving process, reasoning, algebraic operations, the language of mathematics, number theory, and principles underlying the fundamental operations. Use hands-on materials and digital applications to model course concepts. (Fall and Spring only) Four hours lecture. Four credits. Four billable hours.

GENERAL EDUCATION Category: Mathematics

Pre-requisite(s): eligibilityfor ENGL 101   plus MAT 099
with a minimum grade of C or better.
Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Describe ways of representing numbers, relationships between
numbers, and different numeration systems. (GE2)
2. Describe the meaning and relationship of mathematical
operations to justify standard and alternative algorithms for
addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole
numbers, integers, fractions, and decimals. (GE2, GE3)
3. Apply a variety of strategies to compute fluently and make
reasonable estimations. (GE2, GE3)
4. Describe patterns, relations, and functions. (GE2)
5. Represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures
using algebraic symbols. (GE2)
6. Use multiple models, strategies, and the problem-solving
process to solve a variety of mathematical problems. (GE2, GE3,
GE5)
7. Use the language of mathematics to analyze and evaluate the
mathematical thinking strategies of others and to express
mathematical ideas coherently. (GE1, GE2, GE3, GE4)
8. Apply concepts of number theory, including divisibility tests,
factors, multiples, prime and composite numbers, and Venn
diagrams, to make valid conclusions and solve mathematical
problems. (GE2, GE3)
9. Use set language, notation, and operations to describe various
sets, both numerical and non-numerical. (GE2)
