  1. Beckmann, S. (2014). Mathematics for Elementary Teachers with Activities, 4th edition (rental text)
    I recommend printing Class Activities in D2L so you do not need to bring the book to class.
  2. Calculators are allowed, but are not required. Devices with wireless capabilities (e.g., cell phones) are not allowed on assessments.
