LSC-CyFair Math Department
This is designed specifically for students who seek elementary and middle school teacher certification. Topics include concepts of geometry, probability, and statistics, as well as applications
of the algebraic properties of real numbers to concepts of measurement with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking.
Graphing Calculator required. TI 83, TI 84 or TI 86 series calculators recommended.
Calculators capable of symbolic manipulation will not be allowed on tests. Examples include, but are not limited to, TI 89, TI 92, and Nspire CAS models and HP 48 models.
Neither cell phones nor PDAs can be used as calculators. Calculators may be cleared before tests.
