MATH 491: Methods in Middle School/Junior High School Mathematics (3)

*10 clinical hours
*Cross Ref: EDU 491
*Prerequisite: Consent of the instructor
*Offered every spring
This course includes integrated content and methods appropriate for the middle school mathematics program. Topics are selected from the real number system and its operations, probability, statistics, measurement, geometry and algebra. Research implications in these areas are considered for the middle grades. Calculators and computers are integrated throughout the course.

MATH 499: Apprenticeship in College Teaching (3)

*Prerequisite: Consent of instructor and department chairperson
The student serves as an apprentice to an individual full-time mathematics faculty member in a selected lower-level mathematics course (usually 100 level). Open only to those invited to enroll by a mathematics faculty member with approval of the department chairperson.

MATH 501: Statistical Analysis I (3)

*Prerequisite: Approval of the Graham School of Management
*Offered every fall
Topics for this course include descriptive statistics, basic probability, discrete and continuous random variables, sampling and sampling distributions, estimation and sample size, hypothesis testing (one sample), linear regression and correlation. Statistical software will be used. Communication skills will be emphasized with individual and team projects.

MATH 502: Statistical Analysis II (3)

*Prerequisite: MATH 501
*Offered every fall
Review of probability theory with Baye's Theorem, counting techniques and combinatorics, and special discrete and continuous probability distributions. One sample confidence intervals and hypothesis testing for variance. Two sample hypothesis testing and confidence intervals (means, proportions, variances), Chi-square testing for goodness of fit and independence. Design of experiments and analysis of variance. Linear regression and correlation analysis, multiple regression, model building. Time permitting additional topics may be covered. Statistical software will be used. Communication skills will be emphasized with individual and team projects.
