MATH& 132 Math for Elementary Education II • 5 Cr.


Study of basic probability and statistics, geometry and measurement, and the real number system related to topics taught at the K-8 level. Includes analysis of learning difficulties and teaching strategies for these concepts. Fulfills the quantitative or symbolic reasoning course requirement at BC. Prerequisite: Placement by assessment, MATH 099 with a C or better, or MATH& 131 with a C or better.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Apply problem-solving counting techniques.
  • Apply concepts of statistics to gather appropriate data, organize information in charts or graphs, and interpret information from displays of data.
  • Apply probability techniques of experimentation and simulation to make hypotheses, test conjectures, and refine theories.
  • Apply standard and non-standard measurement skills to geometric concepts in two and three dimensions.
  • Use basic geometry to solve real world applications. Perform unit conversions in and between the Metric system and US customary units.
