01:640:109 - Geometry and Measurement for Elementary Teaching

General Information

This geometry course is designed specifically for future teachers, and is strongly recommended for those pursuing the 15-credit middle school mathematics endorsement. It is also very suitable for future teachers at the elementary level who are strong mathematically (e.g. who have done well in another 100 level mathematics course at Rutgers). The emphasis of the course is on understanding the mathematics conceptually, and articulating the reasoning process.

The prerequisite is Math 026:Intermediate Algebra, or equivalent. Many students take Math 107 before 109, but taking the courses in this sequence is not required.

Registration for Math 109 requires a special permission number. Contact Prof. Weingart directly (weingart [at] math [dot] rutgers [dot] edu).
