This course is the first of a two-semester sequence designed for the prospective B-2, 1-6, 5-9, and B-6 teacher. Students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution in Early Childhood or Middle Childhood Education should take this course and MAT 122 . Students will develop an understanding of the mathematical curriculum recommended by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards. Topics include: sets, numeration systems, whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, real numbers, and number theory. A hands-on, problem-solving, technology-based approach will be emphasized throughout this course. Successful completion of the MAT 121 Competency Test is required prior to taking the final exam. A grade of 60% or better is required on the cumulative final exam to pass the class. This course fulfills the math requirements for General Studies, Humanities, and Early Childhood/Childhood Education only.
