An integrated approach to the study of mathematics for those pursuing majors in Childhood Studies or Early Childhood Studies. Through activity-based learning, problem-solving, cooperative learning, the use of technology and communication, students study mathematics foundational to teaching mathematics at the K-8 level including topics from the real number system with an emphasis on the rational numbers, two-dimensional geometry and measurement and selected topics in algebra, probability and statistics. Students are asked to reason inductively, deductively and by using analogies. Students solve problems which require creative thought and not just regurgitation or application of ideas.
