Math Education Impact

Math Education

The Department of Computer Science and Mathematics cooperates with the Department of Education in meeting its mission to prepare candidates for a Bachelors of Arts degree in Education with mathematics teaching endorsement for grades 5-9. This mathematics endorsement prepares teacher candidates for general mathematics through Algebra I. 

The endorsement must be combined with another B.A. in Education degree program.

It is expected that incoming students in this field will present a minimum of four units of high school mathematics, including the equivalent of two units of algebra, one unit of geometry, and one advanced unit such as Pre-Calculus. Students without this background may be required to complete appropriate lower-level courses in addition to the stated requirements. Students should consult with their advisor concerning credit for prerequisites and special examinations for course credit.
