MATH 2033
Mathematics Concepts I

Lecture Notes

The following are lecture notes designed for the Math Concepts I class at ATU. The topics follow the partition of the textbook "Mathematics for Elementary Teachers" by Musser, Burger, and Peterson. These notes have been improved and will continue to be. Please feel free to browse through them.

To Students: BEWARE! The notes posted here are those that I write for myself to bring to class so that if you miss class, you can see approximately what we covered. I will NOT be posting notes as they would appear in class. There will be many missing examples and explanations. This is not a replacement for coming to class and taking notes yourself.
