MATH 2100 - Functions and Modeling for Secondary Mathematics Instruction

This course is a requirement for math majors only in the TNT program. In this exploration of secondary mathematics concepts, prospective mathematics teachers are expected to:

  • Deepen and broaden function-related mathematical content knowledge from Algebra through Calculus.

  • Make connections between college mathematics and secondary school mathematics.

  • Build preliminary knowledge of professional and state mathematics curriculum standards.

  • Use reflective and collaborative learning, and develop a stronger sense of professionalism and leadership.

  • Create efficient seekers and presenters of mathematics content knowledge and history.

  • Explore and learn appropriate use of technology in the mathematics classroom.

A point is made to cover content that is traditionally glossed over by secondary teachers but is essential to preparing students for university mathematics courses. This slighted content includes (but is not limited to) parametric and polar objectives, linear and matrix algebra, regression aspects of statistics, and growth and decay exponential models.

This course counts toward the Discovery portion of the Core Curriculum as well as meeting major requirements for students pursuing Secondary Level Teacher Certification in Mathematics.

Prerequisite(s):

MATH 1710, MATH 1720 (may be taken concurrently) and TNTX 1100 (may be taken concurrently), or consent of the Teach North Texas advisor.
