The Capstone Course in Mathematics examines secondary school mathematics from an advanced point of view. The topics covered are drawn from Abstract Algebra, Analysis, and Geometry and are rooted in the core secondary curriculum of number and operations, algebra, geometry, and functions. Students learn to generalize definitions and theorems that help to unite and explain mathematics. As they explore familiar secondary mathematic problems from a higher perspective, they draw connections between ideas taught separately in different courses. Through their work in the course, they improve their ability to promote their students' understanding of mathematics and to make better decisions regarding the direction of their lessons and curriculum.
