This course develops students' understanding of the mathematical content of
patterns, functions and algebra at the deep level required for successful
elementary school teaching in ways that are meaningful to pre-service elementary
teachers. Topics will include concepts of variable and function; linear,
quadratic and exponential functions and their graphs; patterns, arithmetic and
geometric progressions; solving equations and applications. Connections between
arithmetic and algebra will be emphasized.

This course satisfies the Foundations of Mathematical Reasoning core requirement (CMAR).
