- This course is new to UMKC after 2006, 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 NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) and the MAA (Mathematical Association of America).
**Description:**Designed for middle-school mathematics teachers, focusing on concepts and applications with a discovery and inquiry approach. Elementary calculus beginning with sequences and series, proceeding to functions, limits, and continuity, with differentiation and integration and their applications. **Textbook:**"**Calculus Connections**", by Asma Harcharras and Dorina Mitrea, Mathematics Dept. University of Missouri - Columbia, published by Prentice Hall in 2006. 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.
