Beyond the Catalog: Notes or Advice

Note: This course is new to UMKC starting 2006, so its catalog description is included below. This course is part of an expanded sequence of courses designed to provide a substantial and appropriate mathematical education to prospective (or working) elementary-, middle-, and secondary school teachers, and is motivated by recent reports from both the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) and the MAA (Mathematical Association of America).

Description: Designed for secondary-school teachers. Examine high school mathematics from a higher point of view. Real and complex numbers, functions, algebraic structures of equations, integers and polynomials, number system structures; analyses of alternate approaches, extensions, and applications of mathematical ideas, discussion of historical contexts and connections between ideas that may have been studied separately in different courses, relationships of ideas studied in secondary-school to those students may encounter in later study.
