Description

Functions:Algebra to Calculus will weave procedural and conceptual elements of differential calculus and integral calculus into a rigorous study of linear,quadratic, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, and rational functions. Each function family will be explored algebraically, numerically, graphically and verbally. The classroom will be student-centered with a strong emphasis on collaborative learning. Students will be expected to engage in a rigorous study of the mathematics and participate fully in reflective practices centered on teaching and learning. This course is intended for students who want a rigorous survey of the first-year of college mathematics or who plan on teaching middle school mathematics. Students who plan to teach high school mathematics are also encouraged to take this course, and additional course work in pre-calculus and calculus may be necessary to complete your mathematical preparation to teach high school math.
