Following completion of the course, the student will
demonstrate:
1. an understanding of the standard vocabulary and symbols
associated with;
2. a better understanding of the fundamental concepts in
probability and statistics, including the organization of data, numerical
descriptive measures, discrete random variables and their probability
distributions, and continuous random variables and the normal distribution;
3. a better understanding of the appropriate strategies for
teaching mathematics concepts at the P8 level, and;
4. a better understanding of the uses of a variety of
manipulatives, technology, and other materials for the P8 level.
There will be a midterm exam @ 100
points, a project worth 125 points (we will talk about this later on in the
semester), a comprehensive final worth 100 points. The total possible points
earnable will be 375. Grades will
be assigned on a point scale format:
C = 250227
D = 226195
F = 1940
For each section covered in class
there will be a set of problems provided.
These are not homework problems (thus they will not be graded). These are problems that I recommend that
you do to do your best in the class.
If there are questions about these problems please see the professor
during office hours, before or after class, or on review days.
Attendance is mandatory
to do your best in the course. I
will attempt to take the roll daily.
If you miss more than 2 times you will automatically be dropped from the
course and given a grade of WF.
Three tardies count as one absence.
If
you miss a test you will make that test up on the final exam. No make up exams will be given under ANY conditions.
Cheating
or any kind of conduct that disturbs or disrupts the class will not be
TOLERATED. If you cheat on an exam
or project you will receive a grade of F.
