MATH 3011 - Geometry for Teachers

(3) Credit Hours
Prerequisite: MATH 2008   or MATH 1401  
Math 3011 is designed to prepare students to teach geometry up to grade level 6. MATH 3011 is a content course that gives prospective teachers a deeper understanding of geometry and measurement. This course may not be used to satisfy degree requirements for students majoring in Mathematics. Upon complete of this course students will be prepared to teach geometry by being able to: (1) Demonstrate mathematical creativity and critical thinking by applying geometric understanding to solve a variety of mathematical problems using multiple representations. (2) Interpret and use mathematical language appropriately. (3) Use appropriate technology in the evaluation, analysis and synthesis of information in problem-solving situations. (4) Use geometric applications and procedures to present methods, results and conclusions both in written and oral form. (5) Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships. (6) Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems. (7) Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations. (8) Use visualization, spatial reasoning and geometric modeling to solve problems.
