Description

Although the study of algebra and functions generally begins at the middle and continues through high school grades, many core concepts and practices are accessible at a much earlier age. In fact, if the students are to be successful in algebra their teachers in early grades have to be cognizant and knowledgeable of what those concepts are and how they develop. The purpose of this course is to extend the concepts of number sense (which for some students will have been enriched in Math4010) and develop algebraic reasoning skills of the future elementary school teachers or anyone in a major that doesn't require precalculus. Prerequisites for this course expire after one year.
