# Math For Teachers

The Math Education courses were updated after the UNM College of Education
(COE) reduced the math requirements for elementary education majors
from 9 credit hours to 6 credit hours. Students who still need 9 credit hours should now take MATH 1118, MATH 2118, and MATH 2115.

### MATH 1118 (previously MATH 111, MATH 1110)

**Math for Elementary and Middle School Teachers I**

This course offers an in-depth look rational numbers, arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division),
and basic geometric concepts. Problem solving is emphasized throughout. Pre-requisite: 1130 or 1215 or 1220 or 1230 or 1240 or
1350 or 1430 or 1512 or FYEX 1010 or ACT Math >=19 or SAT Math Section >=480 or ACCUPLACER Next-Generation Arithmetic >=276
(Course updated Fall 2017)

### MATH 2118 (previously MATH 215)

**Math for Elementary and Middle School Teachers III**

The course covers algebra from the viewpoint of elementary school curriculum with emphasis on proportional and linear relationships.
Also included: data analysis and other topics with connections to the elementary curriculum.
Problem solving is emphasized throughout. Pre-requisite: MATH 1118 and (1215X or 1220 or 1230 or 1240 or 1350 or 1430 or 1512 or
