Mathematics for Teachers 2 continues the learning from MATH 105 – Mathematics for Teachers 1 – and emphasizes topics taught in the upper elementary grades, such as ratio, proportion, and percent; geometry; relations, functions, and their graphs; coordinate geometry; and probability and statistics. Mathematics for Teachers 2 covers the important concepts, mathematical methods, and ideas required to teach the elementary mathematics curriculum. It emphasizes the foundational concepts needed to support abstract calculation and it broadens students’ understanding of mathematics. The course blends theory, teaching models, and the use of a variety of manipulatives which are appropriate for teaching mathematics in the elementary grades. Students are required to explain various models for a particular concept, the relationships between them, and when it is appropriate to use them. This course incorporates local Indigenous knowledge, content, ways of knowing, and perspectives into each unit of study.
