MAT 1420 Algebra & Data Analysis for Teachers
Introduction to the concepts of using functions to model data, basic probability and basic statistics as appropriate for early- and middle-childhood teachers. An inquiry- and activity-based approach is used to explore linear and quadratic functions, linear inequalities, modeling data with functions, probability concepts, descriptive statistics and basic inferential statistics.
