**VOCABULARY (vocabulary list) **

1. | Purchase 225 3" by 5" index cards and one single binder ring (or a card box or pouch of your choosing). For ring sets; punch holes in one upper corner of the index cards and put the ring through the cards. | ||

2. | For each vocabulary term or formula, use a new card and do the following: |
||

On one side; write the vocabulary term or formula. Example: |
|||

On the other side; | |||

a. | Write the section number in the upper corner opposite the punched hole. | ||

b. | Write out the definition of the term or give the formula. If you are giving a formula, define your variables (e.g., don't write just A = b x h, write Area = Base x Height or A = b x h, and define A = area, b = base and h = height). | ||

c. | For each vocabulary term, draw a simple and labeled sketch of the item you are defining unless the term is listed on the vocab list as "no picture. Recommendation: Don't waste time on fancy graphics. | ||

WOU Policy on Academic Dishonesty

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Home

Both of the texts used for the 211, 212, 213 series integrate the use and study of the NCTM Standards.

In- Tables of the NCTM Standards and Expectations are found on the inside covers of the book.
- The NCTM Standards appear frequently throughout the text to link the content and pedagogy to the NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics to the mathematics studied in the text.
- Each chapter is opened with a Spotlight on Teaching and takes a close look at specific elements of the NCTM Standards that relate to the material that will be covered in the chapter.
- In the Making Connections exercises in each section, students are asked to carefully review and discuss various elements of the text's pedagogy, such as the NCTM Standards.

- Tables of the NCTM Standards and Expectations are found in an appendix at the end of the book.
- At the end of each activity set there are questions that ask students to relate the activities in the activity set to the Expectations in the NCTM Standards and some questions ask students to explore features of the NCTM web resource
