This course seeks to support students in furthering their understanding of elementary mathematics concepts. The goal is for students to not only pass the MTEL for elementary mathematics, but to lay the groundwork for graduate work in elementary mathematics education. Specifically, we use an integrated approach to algebra that draws on real-world data to the extent possible. To this end, learners will gain experience in selecting and developing a number of data representations, organizing data, looking for patterns in the data and, finally, using words, symbolic notation, graphs and tables to generalize those patterns. No credit in Science or Engineering.
