COURSE DESCRIPTION

Core/Foundation Subjects – 12 UNITS

 

EDF 200 – History and Philosophy of Education. This course covers a thorough analysis and survey on the various philosophical orientations as they are related to the theory of knowledge.

 

EDF 201 – Foundations of Education.  This course covers sociological, psychological, and anthropological aspects of the educational system, stressing the educational structure, the teaching-learning processes, human behavior and development, individual differences and the dynamics of learning, motivating, and measurement and evaluation.

 

EDF 202- Methods of Research. This course focuses on research processes and methodology which includes research conceptualization/planning, problem and hypothesis formulation, research design, data analysis, presentation, writing and reporting.  It also includes model and theory testing and building.

 

EDF 203- Statistics in Education. This lecture-practicum course deals with statistical methods and principles as they apply to education, psychology, sciences agriculture, business, and others. It covers descriptive and inferential statistics needed to interpret data and solve research problems. It deals with the principles, theories, and processes of selection and use of statistics and statistical test for summarizing, analyzing, and interpreting research data.

 

 

Major Subjects – 15 units

 

MAE 250- Foundation of Mathematics. This course deals with prepositional functions, logical operator and algebra of logic, proof of validity and invalidity of argument, quantification, and method of proof. It also includes sets and set operation and the real numbers.

MAE 251- Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry. This course provides a rigorous study of the concept of functions leading to the study of Trigonometry. It deals on functions and their graphical representation: Polynomial Functions,  Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Circular Function, Trigonometric Functions Mathematical Induction, Binomial Theorem, Partial Fractions and Solutions of Right and Oblique Triangles.

 

MAE 252 – Selected Topics in Geometry.  This course includes selected topics on Euclidean geometry, and the introduction of the modern geometries like the hyperbolic, elliptic, and finite geometries.

MAE 253- Number Theory. The course is about the structure of the set of rational numbers. It covers discussions on the set of integers that cover duplicity, Euclid’s Algorithm, factorization, congruences, Pythagorean, and linear deophantine equations.

 

MAE 254 – Mathematics Analysis.  This course is a study of real numbers and inequalities, functions and their graphs, limits, continuity, derivatives of functions and its applications in problem solving. It deals with the different methods of integrating functions like the power formula, standard integration formulas, integration by parts, by substitution, rational fraction and Wallis’ formula. It also includes curve tracing, computation of plane areas, and area bounded by curves.

 

Elective/Cognate Subjects – 9 units

 

MAE 255 – Instructional Methodology. This  course includes information and the application of the different teaching strategies that can be used in teaching Math. It is designed to provide the necessary theoretical bases, training, and experiences in newer and effective methods and techniques to meet the fast changing needs and interest of the students and the society.

MAE 256- Theory of Probability. This course includes techniques of counting, theories on probability, Permutation and Combination, Conditional Probability, Independent Probability; finite Stochastic and probability distributions.

 

MAE 257- Linear Algebra. This course deals with theories on matrices, vectors, spaces, linear transformation, determinants, and eigenvalues and eigenspaces.

 

MAE 258 – Abstract Algebra.  This course covers sets, relations, functions and proving theorems or statements using mathematical induction. It also deals with binary operations in a mathematical system, semi-group, Abelian group and its properties, subgroups and its characteristics, permutation of sets, cycles, cyclic group, co-sets, hormophism, and authomorphism.

 

MAE 259 – The History and Philosophy of Math. This course explores the humanistic aspects of Math which provide the historical context and approaches developed which led to the present understanding of the mathematical concepts including its philosophy.

 

INSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENTS

 

EDMT 237 – Basic Information Technology and Management System.  This course deals with the fundamental concepts of computer and the utilization of computer system and software to produce quality reports, information sheets, slides and presentations. It includes topics on trends in information technology, operating systems, and word processing using MS Word, electronic spreadsheet using MS Excel, and electronic presentation using MS PowerPoint.

 

 

GS 299 – Graduate Seminar.  This is a preparatory course in the conceptualization, development, and writing of thesis following standards in research in terms of design, format, language, and style.  It includes oral presentation and discussion of current researches in the discipline.
