The mathematics education major will prepare you to be a high school math teacher. The curriculum combines a strong foundation of math courses with the education classes necessary to become a licensed teacher.
All education majors have the opportunity for hands-on learning through multiple field experiences. As early as the first year, prospective teachers may become involved in teaching activities. Throughout the program students are provided opportunities to observe and/or participate in classroom practices.
Methods courses emphasize instructional planning, various teaching strategies, and current uses of technology. The culminating experience is student teaching and a professional portfolio presentation.
