Minor in Mathematics Education

All minor applications must be approved by the Department of Mathematics.

The minor in Mathematics Education consists of satisfaction of prerequisites and successful completion with a grade of “C” or better in at least 26 credit hours of course work to help qualify the minor candidate in mathematics education for a secondary school teaching license. The prerequisite and 25-26 credit hours of course work are specified as follows:

  1. Prerequisites to the Mathematics Education Minor: a) Students must complete MATH 110 or MATH 111 and MATH 112 or MATH 131 and MATH 224, with a grade of “C” or better, b) Students must be formally admitted to the Teacher Education Program. This process includes: 1) A completed application approved by the Department of Mathematics, 2) A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.80 (on a 4.00 scale), 3) Passing scores on Praxis I, and 4) An interview by the Teacher Education Panel.
  2. Required courses (19 credit hours): Students in the mathematics education minor program are required to complete the following MATH and CUIN courses: MATH 132, MATH 205, MATH 206, CUIN, CUIN 520, CUIN 640, CUIN 660.
  3. Mathematics electives (6-7 credit hours): Students in the mathematics education minor program need to take at least two additional mathematics courses from the following list: MATH 231, MATH 242, MATH 430, or MATH 450.

All minor applications must be approved by the Department of Mathematics.
