Klein, F. (1939), Elementary Mathematics from the Advanced Standpoint: (vol. 1 & 2): Dover, 1939 (translation from 1907,1908). —  These are the translated lecture notes of Klein for his capstone. They cover much more than the material from my course. They also provide a nice way of thinking about the process of bringing mathematics to the prospective teachers.
