MATH 5377. ALGEBRAIC THINKING IN K-8 MATHEMATICS. 3 Hours.
A study of the practice of making and justifying generalizations in K-8 mathematics, including field properties of operations, modular arithmetic (with applications to odd/even), relations and equivalence relations, the introduction and use of variables and unknowns, and the influence of representations on the form of mathematical arguments. Assignments require interaction in K-8 field settings. Prerequisite: MATH 5375.
Develo p the students’ ability to do independent research and prepare them for more advanced studies in mathematics. Provide advanced training and preparation for professional careers as mathematicians, mathematics teachers, and those employed in engineering, scientific and business fields.
