• Mathematics Education (6-12)
    Program

    The Mathematics Education program is designed for the preparation of mathematics teachers who can effectively design instruction, implementation, and assessment of mathematical concepts, principles, and skills that have been identified by national and state educational bodies as fundamental mathematical standards. The goals, objectives, and experiences incorporated into the program reflect the current state of professional knowledge and recommended practices deduced from professional literature and experience. The Mathematics Education program includes the philosophical, historical, and psychological foundations; a sequence of generic courses in preparation for teaching; and additional content courses. The final experiences allow for synthesis of the program’s fabric and the emergence of a highly trained, knowledgeable, and proactive individual who is inspired to learn and teach mathematics.
