- This course is new to UMKC starting 2007, so its catalog description is included below.
- This course is part of an expanded sequence of courses designed by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics 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 MAA (Mathematical Association of America).
**Description:**Designed for middle-school mathematics teachers to connect middle school and college mathematics. Geometric reasoning, Euclidean geometry, congruence, area and volume, similarity, rigid motions and symmetry, vectors and transformations, some other geometries. **Textbook:**"**Geometry Connections**", by John Beem, Mathematics Dept. University of Missouri - Columbia, published by Prentice Hall in August 2005. This text is a product of the**Connecting Middle School and College Mathematics**NSF project, 2001-2004, to strengthen and improve the mathematics preparation of middle school mathematics teachers.
