Preston, Ron; Rachlin, Sid; DeBellis, Valerie; Robinson, Zachary; Sinicrope, Rose
This paper describes the mathematics concentration program at East Carolina University (ECU) that is taken by preservice middle grades teachers intending to teach mathematics. Following a brief examination of the forces that impacted the formation of this mathematics concentration, this paper describes the program and highlights five courses from a development perspective. The five courses are: Algebraic Concepts and Relationships, Data Analysis and Probability, Pre-Calculus Concepts and Relationships, Discrete Mathematics, and Applied Mathematics via Modeling.
