### Math 591 Number Theory and Systems for Middle School Teachers

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of number systems (integers, rational numbers, and real numbers) and number theory. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore fundamental properties of number systems, to model algorithms, and to explore number theory topics. How children learn mathematics and the rationales for developing the methods and strategies for teaching the many topics in these mathematics curricula to children of diverse cultures will be integrated with the mathematics content.

### Math 592 Data Analysis and Probability for Middle School Teachers

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of data analysis and probability. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore data, statistical measures, and elements of probability. How children learn mathematics and the rationales for developing the methods and strategies for teaching the many topics in these mathematics curricula to children of diverse cultures will be integrated with the mathematics content.

### Math 594 Patterns, Functions, and Algebra for Middle School Teachers

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of patterns, functions, and algebra. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics. Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation for more formal algebraic work will be integrated with the mathematics content.

### Math 595 Geometry for Middle School Teachers

This course will examine the content and study the fundamental principles that underlie middle school mathematics from an advanced viewpoint, with a focus on geometry and measurement. How children learn mathematics and the rationales for developing the methods and strategies for teaching the many topics in these mathematics curricula to children of diverse cultures will be integrated with the mathematics content.

### Math 597 Discrete Math for Middle School Teachers

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of discrete math topics. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore the concepts.

### Math 598 Calculus for Middle School Teachers

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of mathematics through the study of calculus. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics. Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation of the concepts of calculus will be integrated with the mathematics content.
