Math for Teachers at UNM

(Elementary and Middle School) NOTE:  The Math Education courses were updated after the College of Education (COE) reduced the math requirements for elementary education majors from 9 credit hours to 6 credit hours.

Math 1110/1118 (Formerly MATH 111) – Math for Elementary and Middle School Teachers 1

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.  (Course updated Fall 2017)

Math 215 – Math for Elementary and Middle School Teachers 3

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 111 (Course Updated Spring 2018)

Math 216 – Math for Middle School Teachers

Development of mathematical concepts from the viewpoint of the middle school curriculum.  Topics include: in-depth development of algebraic thinking, connections between algebra and geometry, and applications.  Problem solving is emphasized throughout.  Pre-requisite: MATH 215 (First offered Fall 2018)

OLD COURSE: Math 112 – Math for Elementary and Middle School Teachers 2 (No longer offered)

This course develops basic geometric concepts including rigid transformations and congruence; dilations and similarity; length, area and volume; systems of measurement and unit conversions; connections to coordinate geometry. Problem solving is emphasized throughout.  (Pre-requisite: MATH 111) Students who need 9 credit hours of Math Education courses should now take MATH 111, MATH 215 and MATH 216

NEW NUMBERING: MATH 111 becomes MATH 1110 (fall) then MATH 1118 (spring); MATH 215 becomes MATH 2118 (spring), MATH 216 becomes MATH 2115 (spring)
