Mathematics for Teachers Program


The outreach program in mathematics for teachers offers graduate courses under the 644 course code primarily to help in-service teachers deepen their understanding of the mathematics of K-12--their mathematical knowledge for teaching. The courses listed under this course code focus on the mathematics of grades 5-8 as described in the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. These courses are mathematics content courses applicable toward a Middle Grades Mathematics Specialization Endorsement on a K-8 teaching certificate.

These courses may be accepted by the Rutgers Graduate School of Education (GSE) toward the Ed.M. in mathematics education. Please contact GSE for information about that possibility.

The Department of Mathematics does not currently offer a master's degree in mathematics for teachers. These courses are not open to graduate students seeking degrees in mathematics (640) or applied mathematics (642).

Registration in each 644 course requires permission of the department. Ordinarily, permission is granted only to teachers of appropriate grade levels and to graduate students in a graduate school of education.

See the current schedule of courses to learn which courses are offered in the academic year and/or in the Summer Session. Academic year courses meet once a week for a three-hour session. Except for the Seminar in Mathematical Ideas (16:644:501), these courses are offered in an intense summer institute format meeting all day, five days a week, for two consecutive weeks.

For further information, please contact the graduate secretary in mathematics, who will refer you to the coordinator for 644 offerings.


Graduate Courses in Mathematics for Teachers (644)

16:644:501 (S) Seminar in Mathematical Ideas (3)
Problematical yet fundamental ideas in the mathematics curriculum; explorations of the historical development; logical and cognitive issues involved in understanding and applying those ideas.
Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor; not open to degree candidates in mathematics (640, 642); ordinarily restricted to experienced K-8 teachers and to graduate students in mathematics education. Credit not given for both this course and 15:254:649.

16:644:502 (Su) Transition from Arithmetic to Algebra for Middle School Teachers (3)

Properties of basic number systems (counting, numbers, integers, rationals, reals). Algebraic expressions. Equations and inequalities; their meaning, solution, applications, quantifiers. Coordinate systems. Functions and their graphs. Emphasis on reasoning and explanation.
Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor; not open to degree candidates in mathematics (640, 642); ordinarily restricted to experienced K-8 teachers and to graduate students in mathematics education. Credit not given for both this course and 15:254:594.

16:644:503 (Su) Geometry and Measurement for Middle School Teachers (3)

Basic properties and measurement of geometric objects. Rigid motions and symmetry, similarity. Perimeter, area, and volume for polygons and polyhedrons. Approximating these quantities for curvilinear objects. Explanation and justification.
Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor; not open to degree candidates in mathematics (640, 642); ordinarily restricted to experienced K-8 teachers and to graduate students in mathematics education. Credit not given for both this course and 15:254:595.

16:644:504 (Su) Problem Solving with Discrete Mathematics for the Middle Grades (3)
Elementary mathematical modeling and problem solving arising from discrete mathematics, systematic counting, map coloring, use of vertex-and-edge graphs, and number patterns.
Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor; not open to degree candidates in mathematics (640, 642); ordinarily restricted to experienced K-8 teachers and to graduate students in mathematics education. Credit not given for both this course and 15:254:597.

16:644:505 (Su) Data and Probability for Middle School Teachers (3)
Display and analysis of data (median, mean, variance, stem-and-leaf plots; box-and-whisker plots); empirical and theoretical approaches to finite probability and uniform distributions. Risk.
Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor; not open to degree candidates in mathematics (640, 642); ordinarily restricted to experienced K-8 teachers and to graduate students in mathematics education. Credit not given for both this course and 15:254:596.
