An introduction to the mathematical content knowledge needed by those who plan to teach in grades K-8. Included are mathematical reasoning; patterns; numeration systems; numerical computations; estimation strategies; introductory concepts of number theory; properties of whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers culminating in the set of real numbers; problem-solving and mathematical modeling with connections among mathematical ideas and within contexts in the larger physical world. Teacher candidates use the language of mathematics to communicate mathematical ideas orally and in writing. Topics from the history of mathematics and from various cultural perspectives are integrated within the course material. This course prepares teacher candidates for the mathematics basic skills portion of the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification; thus teacher candidates perform all calculations without the use of a calculator.
