MATH 140 - Mathematics for Elementary Teachers

Unit(s): 4.00

Prerequisite:Enrollment requires appropriate placement (based on high school GPA and/or other measures), or completion of an intermediate algebra course.
Transfers to: UC, CSU

This course is designed to deepen and extend the student's understanding of the foundations of the mathematics taught in elementary school. Because it is intended for the student preparing to teach at that level, it frequently refers to and uses materials and methodology appropriate for students at that level, but it is not a methods course. The course is concept-driven with an emphasis on problem solving. Concrete manipulatives are used to give meaning to abstract mathematical concepts. Topics include numeration and place value concepts, models and algorithms for operations with whole numbers, integers, fractions and decimals, and the structure and properties of the real number system.
