MATH 206 Mathematical Modeling for Teachers III

3 Credits

In this course, students learn a mastery of Geometry and Measurement skills required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education that are assessed on the PAPA examination and recommended by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.  The communication of mathematical ideas in both written work and oral presentations, as well as the multiple techniques for explaining basic Geometry and Measurement skills are included in this course.  Students are taught to successfully complete and create problems which apply Geometric skills to real-world or puzzle scenarios, develop a facility with the vocabulary and theory behind Geometry and Measurement, and identify common problem areas and errors in Geometry and Measurement that are faced by students at the Elementary School level.  Registration and preparation for the successful completion of the PAPA/ETS Core Mathematics test is required.   

Prerequisite(s): MATH 205
