The mathematics teaching major prepares students to teach mathematics at the secondary level, completing mathematics courses such as Calculus I, II, and III; Linear Algebra; Discrete Mathematical Structures; College Geometry; Abstract Algebra; Real Analysis; Problem Seminar; either Introductory Statistics with Applications or Mathematical Statistics; and either Differential Equations or Mathematical Models. Students must also meet requirements of the School of Education to meet professional teaching requirements.
What courses will I take?
- Teaching as a Profession
- Calculus I
- Methods in Teaching Mathematics
- Technology in the Classroom
- Discrete Mathematical Structures
What experiences will I have?
In preparing for careers as mathematics educators, students participate in classroom observations as well as completing a semester of student teaching. Students may also volunteer for organizations like College Mentors for Kids in a variety of capacities that both serve the community and broaden their experience in working with young people.
