Text: "Mathematics for High School Teachers: An Advanced Perspective" by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project. We will be piloting this text this semester. Copies will be distributed at the first class meeting. The books will be free, but students will be asked in exchange, as they work through the book, to fill out a form listing any difficulties they have with the text and any suggestions for its improvement.

Special Needs: If you have a physical, psychological, medical or learning disability that may impact on your ability to carry out assigned course work, I would urge that you contact the staff in the Disabled Student Services office (DSS), Room 133 Humanities, 632-6748/TDD. DSS will review your concerns and determine, with you, what accommodations are necessary and appropriate. All information and documentation of disability is confidential.
