MAE-Mathematics: Education

MAE 2810 Mathematics for Elementary Teachers . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Basic operations, number systems, numeration, metrics, elementary geometry and probability. Designed primarily for teachers in elementary education. Student must have satisfied the Basic Math Skills requirement.

MAE 4310 Teaching Mathematics in the Elementary School . . . . . 3(F,S,SS)
Theory and methods for teaching mathematics in the elementary school; contemporary approaches to teaching concepts, number systems, numeration systems, computational algorithms, problem solving, informal geometry, measurement and other topics. Material and supply fee will be assessed.

MAE 4320 Teaching Mathematics in the Middle and Secondary Schools . . . . . 2(F)
Theory and methods of teaching mathematics in the middle and secondary schools; contemporary approaches to teaching concepts, number systems, numeration systems, computational algorithms, problem solving, informal geometry, measurement and other topics. Includes observation/ participation in appropriate school settings.

MAE 4330 Exploring Secondary School Mathematics . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: ESE 3321C, MHF 3202, MTG 3212 and MAS 3105, MAS 4203 or MAS 4301.
Procedures, practices and content of mathematics in the secondary school. (Does not count toward concentration in mathematics; meets State of Florida certification requirements for special methods in mathematics.)

MAE 4657 Mathematics for the 21st Century . . . . . 3(SS)
Prerequisite: MAC 2311.
Utilizes appropriate technologies for teaching mathematics at the middle and secondary school levels. Offered concurrently with MAE 5658; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

MAE 5658 Mathematics for the 21st Century . . . . . 3(SS)
Prerequisite: MAC 2311.
Utilizes appropriate technologies for teaching mathematics at the middle and secondary school levels. Offered concurrently with MAE 4657; graduate students will be assigned additional work.

MAE 6115C Teaching Mathematics in Elementary Education . . . . . 3(SS)
Analysis and evaluation of new programs and practices in teaching elementary school mathematics, including study of effects of these programs on teaching methods and materials; lab experiences including design, field testing and evaluation of activity-oriented lessons in mathematics and development of competence in the use of teaching aids in mathematics instruction; contemporary approaches to teaching elementary mathematics concepts and problem solving; development of competence in the use of alternative assessment techniques.

MAE 6339 Teaching Algebraic and Geometric Concepts . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: MTG 3212. Pre/Corequisite: MAS 5311.
Concepts found in secondary mathematics textbooks in algebra and geometry will be explored from an advanced standpoint. Similarities and differences in the teaching of these two subjects will be addressed.

MAE 6361 Teaching Mathematics in Middle Level and Secondary Education . . . . . 3(S)
Corequisite: EDM 6944 or ESE 6944.
Assists middle and secondary level teachers to develop theoretical understanding and skills necessary to teach in a manner consistent with current reform efforts in mathematics education. Focuses on components of understanding mathematics teaching and learning: 1) how students learn mathematics; 2) the role of the teacher in delivering effective mathematics lessons. Credit may not be earned in both MAE 6360 and MAE 6361.

MAE 6655 Computer Applications in Secondary School Mathematics . . . . . 3(CALL DEPT)
Prerequisite: MAS 3105.
Methods and techniques for using the computer in the mathematics classroom. Knowledge of a computer language is required.

Historical origins and evolution of key mathematical concepts. Contributions of great mathematicians. Applications to classroom. Permission is required.

MAE 6930 Proseminar in Mathematics Education . . . . . 1(CALL DEPT)
Each M.A. or M.A.T. candidate (except those who choose the thesis option), shall, under the direction of a project advisor, independently investigate a topic or topics in mathematics/statistics or mathematics education through the study of journal articles or other appropriate sources. The candidate shall submit a formal written report and make an oral presentation of the results of his/her investigations. The goal of the proseminar is to provide students an opportunity to integrate the total experience gained during their graduate training. Graded on satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis only. Admission to M.A. candidacy and permission is required.

MAE 8980 Ed. D. Dissertation in Mathematics Education . . . . . 1-18(F,S,SS)
Major independent research designed especially for candidates in the Ed. D. curriculum and instruction program with specialization in mathematics/statistics; mathematics education. This dissertation will reflect intensive research produced by the student and collaboratively developed with the student's graduate committee. Graded on satisfactory/ unsatisfactory basis only. Admission to candidacy and permission of Dissertation advisor is required.
