Patterns and sequences, sets, the structure of various numeration systems, the four fundamental operations of arithmetic, integers, rational numbers, and elementary number theory. This course stresses conceptual understanding of mathematics through concrete examples, models, multiple representations of ideas and concepts, and processes of mathematical reasoning.
Prerequisite(s): MATH 1233 with a grade of C or better.
Course Evaluation: Suggested homework problems will be assigned but not graded. Instead, the material in the homework will be evaluated by a variety of methods: announced/pop/take-home quizzes, short student presentations (board work), and student participation in small groups. The quizzes/presentations/group work will count as 15% of the final grade. There will also be three In-class Exams which will each count as 20% of the final grade. Finally, there will be a cumulative Final Exam which will count as 25% of the final grade.
Letter Grades: The final letter grades will be determined by the following scale:
A --- 90% and above
B --- 80% - 89%
C --- 70% - 79%
D --- 60% - 69%
F --- 59% and below
Make-ups for exams and quizzes will only be allowed for a university approved excuse in writing. Wherever possible, students should inform the instructor before an exam or quiz is missed.
