MTH 211 - Fundamentals of Elementary Math I

4 Credit(s)

Prerequisite(s): MTH 95  or MTH 96  or designated placement.

Course Description: The first of a three-term sequence designed to prepare pre-service elementary and middle school teachers for entrance into the Oregon teacher’s certification program. The course will study the topics of problem solving, sets, whole number concepts and operations, elementary number theory, integers, and elementary logic.

Course Level: Lower Division Collegiate

Course Learning Outcomes:
  • CLO#1: Identify and use problem-solving steps and problem solving strategies to understand, analyze and solve problems.
  • CLO#2: Identify and use the attributes of numbers to describe the nature of the whole numbers, integers, and numeration systems.
  • CLO#3: Use definitions and properties to describe the operations of whole numbers and integers.
  • CLO#4: Justify operational algorithms for whole numbers using properties and theorems. (ILO: Quantitative Literacy & Reasoning)
  • CLO#5: Calculate whole number and integer results accurately using mental math, paper and pencil, and computational technology.
  • CLO#6: Communicate and respond to mathematical conjectures by seeking verification using mathematical definitions, properties and theorems. Respond to, including respectfully disagreeing with, the mathematical conjectures of others.
  • CLO#7: Develop, evaluate, and present elementary mathematical arguments (proofs) using properties and theorems developed in this course.
