Math 1351 Foundations of Mathematics II Information
LSC-CyFair Math Department
This is designed specifically for students who seek elementary and middle school teacher certification. Topics include concepts of geometry, probability, and statistics, as well as applications
of the algebraic properties of real numbers to concepts of measurement with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking.
Course Learning Outcomes
The student will:
• Explore the geometric attributes of physical objects in order to classify and to form definitions.
• Analyze spatial characteristics such as direction, orientation, and perspective.
• Connect geometric ideas to numbers and measurement.
• Use geometric models to solve problems.
• Explore and understand measurement and estimation.
• Analyze data and statistics.
• Use probability with simple and complex experiments.
• Understand surface area and volume through discovery.
