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. This endorsement must be combined with a B.A. in Elementary Education degree program or any another B.A. in Education degree program. Field experiences and student teaching in an approved K-6 classroom and in an approved classroom for mathematics endorsement are required.
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.
