2013-2014 Catalog

 

Mathematics Education (5-12 Certification)

As an alternative to the regular mathematics education course of study, students may choose a double major of mathematics + secondary education. Students who are considering post-baccalaureate work in mathematics following graduation instead of entering the teaching field immediately may want to choose this alternative. Both options — mathematics education or mathematics + teacher education — qualify the graduate for an Indiana teaching license in mathematics.
