This geometry course is designed specifically for future teachers, and is
strongly recommended for
those pursuing the 15-credit middle school mathematics endorsement.
It is also very suitable for future teachers at the elementary level
who are strong mathematically (e.g. who have done well in another 100
level mathematics course at Rutgers). The emphasis of the course is
on understanding the mathematics conceptually, and articulating the
The prerequisite is Math 026:Intermediate Algebra, or equivalent. Many students take Math 107 before 109, but taking the courses in this sequence is not required.
Registration for Math 109 requires a special permission number. Contact Prof. Weingart directly (weingart [at] math [dot] rutgers [dot] edu).
