Preferences on the Summer 2012 and FW 2012-13 course offerings

In keeping with the tradition of offering Math 5020 and Math 5400 (the two required courses for this program) alternate years we will offer History of Mathematics for Teachers (MATH 5400) during the Summer 2012 or FW 2012-13. One possibility that has arisen is that it should be offered in Summer 2012 (roughly 12 weeks in May through July, possibly Tuesday/Thursday but finer details such as dates are quite tentative at this point).

I don't want to take this option if this should conflict with people who have already taken Math 5400 and will leave them unable to finish until the end of 2013. If this should apply to you, would you please contact me and let me know what courses you have taken and your plans for finishing the program and I will try to take these into account when we decide what will be offered in the 2012-13 academic year.

FW 2011-12 schedule

We had to switch the days that Fundamentals and Algebra would be offered because of a conflict that I had. Sorry for those of you who signed up for the courses with the days switched.

The actual schedule is now.
Math 5420 6.0 : Algebra for Teachers
Ada Chan
Mondays 6-9pm

Math 5020 6.0 : Fundamentals in Mathematics for Teachers
Mike Zabrocki
Thursdays 6-9pm

In addition, I will be out of town the first two weeks of September and so the Fundamentals course may face a delayed start that we will have to make up. A notice will be sent out to registered students as we get closer to the start day.
