Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: Introduction to Mathematical Ideas allows liberal arts students to meet general education mathematics requirements while exploring concepts and objects of mathematics in a meaningful way. This course is designed to show some of the essence and quality of mathematics, and to enhance precision in the evaluation and expression of ideas, thereby developing a student's quantitative reasoning skills. It is recommended primarily for students who do not plan to major in a math-related field, but may be of interest to others as well. Course content may include topics from numeration systems, logic, geometry, probability, statistics, algebraic modeling, number theory, consumer mathematics, graph theory, voting and apportionment, and perhaps others; concepts of contemporary mathematics may be covered. Emphasis is placed on the deductive process.

Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 36 hours LEC ; 54 hours LAB
Description: This course is an education-based field experience in mathematics designed to allow students to explore learning styles, learning environments and learning methods as they apply to tutoring and teaching mathematics. While exploring teaching as a career choice, students will have the opportunity to learn and practice essential skills to motivate and assist younger students with their progress through the mathematics curriculum. Students will be assigned to area schools to observe and assist in a mathematics classroom and to work with selected students in structured one-on-one or group settings. Weekly seminars will allow students to share experiences and compare observations. Students will also have the opportunity to explore their own cognitive learning styles and consider how these learning styles relate to mathematics both as learner and as teacher. Students will have the opportunity to learn about social, cultural, and educational issues related to mathematics and the school environment. This course is recommended for students considering a major in teaching preparation who may wish to pursue either a multiple subject credential or a single subject credential in mathematics. Prior to beginning work in the schools, students may be required to be fingerprinted and pass a TB test. This course may be taken two times for credit.

Class meets once a week for one hour and 40 minutes. Class meeting day/time will be finalized at organizational meeting. In addition, students will spend approximately 3 to 4 hours per week in a local middle or high school classrooms. Students are advised to save their time in their schedules during normal school hours (i.e. between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.) to schedule these hours in the field. Students should bring their schedule to the first meeting so that a high school or middle school classroom can be chosen to fit their schedule.
