   Math 1111-01  





























     Description of Course Content


     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 P-8 level, and;

4.         a better understanding of the uses of a variety of manipulatives, technology, and other materials for the P-8 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.  Two quizzes will be worth 25 points each. The total possible points earnable will be 375.  Grades will be assigned on a point scale format:

     A = 375-337

     B = 336-300

     C = 299-262

     D = 261-225

     F = 224-0


     Suggested Problems


     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 Policy


          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 (or any part of the project) you will receive a grade of F.  If caught a second time you will receive an F for the semester.
