MATH 805T - Discrete Math for Teachers
Credit Hours3
Primary AudienceGrade 6-12 Teachers
Secondary AudienceGrade 4-5 Teachers
DescriptionThis course is designed to deepen knowledge of discrete mathematics as it relates to topics covered in middle through high school curricula. Many of the course topics are introduced through "hands-on" explorations including methods of counting, graph theory (networking) and voting theory, which is particularly relevant in an election year. (For example, did you know it has been mathematically proven that there is no one best way to determine the winner of an election?) The course also develops an understanding of the role of precise mathematical language, reasoning, and proof in the development of discrete mathematics. The exploratory exercises in the course provide useful vehicles for promoting communication as groups will collaborate to explore problems and present various solutions.
