Secondary certification in Mathematics requires a baccalaureate degree and completion of professional education courses (see Professional Education ) for licensure. Students preparing for secondary teacher certification must include MATH 215 - Statistics (I-2a) , MATH 312 - History of Mathematics (W) , and MATH 415 - Geometry . See further explanations in the School of Education and Psychology section.
The student must apply for Initial Admission to the Teacher Education Program (usually by the end of the sophomore year) after completing all requirements as outlined under ADMISSION PROCEDURES in the School of Education and Psychology section of the Catalog. Initial admission is required before the student can enroll in upper division education courses.
The student must also complete an application and all other requirements for Admission to Student Teaching. Prior to the professional semester, the student must take and pass the PRAXIS II licensure exam—both the appropriate section of the Principles of Learning and Teaching, and the particular specialty test(s) for the licensure area(s).
An endorsement to teach mathematics as an additional field may be obtained by completing a major and secondary certification in another field and by completing a minor in mathematics that includes the following courses (22 hours): MATH 181 - Calculus I , MATH 182 - Calculus II , MATH 200 - Elementary Linear Algebra , MATH 215 - Statistics (I-2a) , MATH 219 - Set Theory and Logic , MATH 415 - Geometry , one three-hour upper-division MATH course, and EDUC 342 - Curriculum and Content Methods .
