MG5330 - Functions and Modeling for Middle/Secondary School Teachers
This course focuses on functions and modeling concepts central to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics [CCSSM]. Specifically, the mathematical content of the course aligns with the CCSSM standards (gr. 5-12) in functions and modeling. Students will develop conceptual understanding and confidence working with functions and modeling. Activities are designed to demonstrate how the Standards for Mathematical Practice in CCSSM can be integrated in the everyday learning experiences of every student. Class discussions are centered on thinking processes, habits of mind, conceptual understanding, and dispositions that students need in order to develop a deep, flexible, and enduring understanding of mathematics.
