MAED 6020 Data Analy Prob Alg-Teachers

This course is required for all Early Childhood Teachers who seek the K-5 Mathematics Endorsement. In addition, this course may satisfy requirements for students in the MAT and EDS programs. This course will concentrate on solving problems related to the study of algebra, data analysis, and probability. Students will engage in systematically collecting, organizing, describing, and analyzing data using surveys, tables, charts, and graphs; making valid inferences, decisions, and arguments based on data; and using counting techniques, experimental probability, or theoretical probability as appropriate to represent and solve problems involving uncertainty. In addition, generalizations from arithmetic and from patterns in all of mathematics, meaningful use of symbols, structure in the number system, functions, mathematical modeling, and topics in number theory will be explored and developed through algebraic reasoning.
