MATH 108 Mathematical Modeling for Teachers I
The course develops a mastery of Arithmetic 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. Students are taught to communicate mathematical ideas clearly in both written and oral presentations. They learn to demonstrate knowledge of multiple algorithms for explaining basic Arithmetic skills. Students also complete and create problems which apply those skills to real-world or puzzle scenarios. During this process, a facility with the vocabulary and theory related to Arithmetic and Number Theory is further developed. At the conclusion of this course, students are able to identify common problems and errors in Arithmetic that are faced by students at the K-4 Grade level.
