Mathematics Education Minor Requirements
Lower Division Courses (12 credits)
- Fundamentals of Elementary Mathematics I, II, and III (Mth 211, 212, and 213)
NOTE: Students who have completed one or more of Mth 251, 252, 253, 261, or 281 with a C- or better, may substitute them in place of at most two of the Mth 211, 212, and 213 requirements. In addition, students selecting this option must apply for and complete a 4 credit Mth 409 Practicum assisting an instructor in one of Mth 211, 212, or 213, which will then be substituted for that course. See the Math Department Chair if you are interested in this option.
Upper Division Courses (15 credits)
- Five Topics in Middle School and High School Mathematics (Mth 481)
Prospective Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Teachers: Students who complete the Mathematics Education Minor also meet the course prerequisites for the Basic Mathematics Endorsement in the MAT program if they include the following topics: Arithmetic and Algebraic Structures and Experimental Probability and Statistics. (To satisfy prerequisites, all course grades should be C- or better.)
Double-Minors: If you want to pursue both minors, two of the Mth 481 topics you take for the Mathematics Education Minor may also be counted toward the upper division requirements in the Mathematics Minor.
