MAE

MAE 3320   INTERACTIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHEMATICS PROJECTS

credits: 3  

Prerequisite : Admission to :Middle Grades Mathematics Education (5-9) BS, OR Secondary Mathematics Education (6-12) BS, OR ICERT-NO, OR RCERT-NO; Corequisite: MAE 3941. This course is designed for students who are majoring in mathematics education. In this course students learn principles of effective curriculum design and assessment and apply these principles by designing and developing interactive mathematics curriculum projects for middle school students. This course is offered concurrently with the one credit hour practicum, Interactive Middle School Mathematics Projects. This course addresses specific Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, and/or Common Core State Standards, and pedagogy pertinent to the discipline and required for certification. 47 contact hours.

MAE 3823   CONNECTIONS THROUGH ALGEBRAIC THINKING

credits: 4  

Prerequisite: Admission to Middle Grades Mathematics Education (5-9) BS, and DEP 3305, OR ICERT-NO, OR RCERT-NO. This course is designed to develop a background for the middle school mathematics teacher that will enable the teacher to understand the relationship between the brain and learning, the meaning of conceptual change, some of the history of symbolic language, the geometric terms used for shapes and simple relationships, the significance of readiness for abstract thought and the importance of variety in teaching through presentations that utilize technology and connections to out-of-school experiences. The course will emphasize the constructivist approach and the teaching of solving problems mathematically. The course will utilize Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS), and/or Common core State Standards in problem solving in algebraic and geometric applications as well as applications with basic numerical operations. 62 contact hours.

MAE 3941   INTERACTIVE MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHEMATICS PROJECTS PRACTICUM

credits: 1  

Prerequisite(s): Admission to Secondary Math Education BS or Middle Grades Math Education BS. Corequisite(s): MAE 3320. This course is designed for students who are majoring in mathematics education. This practicum accompanies Interactive Middle School Mathematics Projects. Students spend a minimum of sixty (60) school-based hours in the middle school classroom. 17 contact hours.
 

MAE 4330   INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS IN SECONDARY MATHEMATICS WITH TECHNOLOGY

credits: 3  

Prerequisite: Admission to Secondary Math Education OR Secondary Math EPI, and Corequisite MAE 4942 with a minimum grade of C. This course is designed for students who are majoring in secondary mathematics education or middle grades math education and is offered concurrently with Instructional Methods in Secondary Mathematics with Technology Practicum. This course addresses the required instructional methods, techniques, strategies, resources, and assessment considerations for effective teaching of secondary mathematics. It also incorporates appropriate technology to support the learning of mathematics. This course addresses specific Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, and/or Common Core State Standards, and pedagogy pertinent to the discipline and required for certification. 47 contact hours.

MAE 4642   ASSESSING COGNITIVE AND AFFECTIVE ISSUES IN LEARNING MATHEMATICS

credits: 2  

Prerequisites: Admission to : Middle Grades Mathematics Education (5-9) BS, and EDF 3214 or DEP 3305 OR Secondary Mathematics Education (6-12) BS, and EDF 3214, OR DEP 3305, OR ICERT-NO, OR RCERT-NO. This course is designed for students who are majoring in mathematics education and who will be obtaining teacher certification in grades 5 -12. This course assesses research-based evidence of cognitive and affective factors that impede or enhance learning (e.g., learner characteristics, what makes learning a particular concept difficult, teaching methodologies for specific areas of content) and applies this evidence to the teaching of mathematics. It emphasizes pedagogical reflection and problem solving by means of active learning strategies, physical and visual materials, print and electronic resources and effective questioning and communicating. This course addresses specific subject matter competencies and pedagogy pertinent to the discipline and Common Core State Standards and required for certification. 32 contact hours.

MAE 4940   INTERNSHIP: SECONDARY MATHEMATICS EDUCATION 6-12

credits: 12  

Prerequisites: Successful completion of all Secondary Mathematics Education BS program requirements and passing of all sections of the General Knowledge and Professional Education Exam. This course requires a teacher candidate to demonstrate competency on the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices (FEAPs) at the pre-professional level during one semester of full time internship in a 6-12 school setting as approved by the College of Education. Teacher candidates must assume full-day teaching duties for a minimum of six weeks during the fifteen week internship. The internship also includes mandatory on-campus seminars. Contact hours: a minimum of 35 hours per week for 15 weeks.

MAE 4942   INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS IN SECONDARY MATHEMATICS WITH TECHNOLOGY PRACTICUM

credits: 1  

Prerequisite: Admission to MTSED-BS, MGMED-BS; Corequisite(s): MAE 4330. This course is designed for students who are majoring in mathematics education and is offered concurrently with Instructional Methods in Secondary Mathematics with Technology. This course provides students with opportunities to apply the knowledge of teaching methods, techniques, and strategies learned in Instructional Methods in Secondary Mathematics with Technology. There are sixty (60) school-based hours of teaching/observation required and will be coordinated with in-service high school teachers and their curriculum schedules and needs. 17 contact hours

MAE 4943   INTERNSHIP: MIDDLE GRADES MATHEMATICS EDUCATION 5-9

credits: 12  

Prerequisites: This course requires a teacher candidate to demonstrate competency on the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices (FEAPs) at the pre-professional level during one semester of full time internship in a 5-9 public or private school setting as approved by the Dean College of Education. Teacher candidates must assume full-day teaching duties for a minimum of six weeks during the fifteen week internship. The internship also includes a series of mandatory professional leadership on-campus seminars. Contact hours: 525
