**MTH 211 - Fundamentals of Elementary Mathematics I**

Introduces the theory of arithmetic for prospective teachers. Topics include set theory, numeration, place value, computational algorithms for whole numbers and integers, computational estimation, mental arithmetic, relations and functions, and number theory. Content is taught within a problem-solving framework using calculators and computers as aids. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory. Students entering the next MAT cohort have enrollment priority over other registered and waitlisted students. Approved for University Studies (Quantitative Reasoning (met after completion of both MTH 211 and MTH 212)).

** MTH 212 - Fundamentals of Elementary Mathematics II**

Covers rational number arithmetic for prospective teachers. Topics include theory and modeling of fractions, decimals, and percentages; rational and irrational numbers; mental arithmetic and computational estimation; graphing linear and nonlinear functions; and probability and statistics. Content is taught within a problem-solving framework using calculators and computers as aids. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory. Students entering the next MAT cohort have enrollment priority over other registered and waitlisted students. Approved for University Studies (Quantitative Reasoning (met after completion of both MTH 211 and MTH 212)).

**MTH 213 - Fundamentals of Elementary Mathematics III**

Covers informal geometry and measurement for prospective teachers. Topics include properties of two- and three-dimensional space, the metric system, measurement, estimation, perimeter, area, volume, surface area, congruence motions, similarity motions, and topological motions. Content is taught within a problem-solving framework using calculators and computers as aids. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory. Students entering the next MAT cohort have enrollment priority over other registered and waitlisted students.Prerequisite(s): MTH 211.
