Preparation for Teaching (Grades 7-12)

See also Education/Adolescence Education.

Students who wish to be recommended for New York State certification for teaching mathematics at the secondary level (grades 7 - 12) must complete all general education, pre-major, and major requirements for the Mathematics BS.

For admission and continuation in the Adolescence Education Sequence and all Adolescence Education courses students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. Students must include, within the set of advanced courses required by the major, one or more upper-level Mathematics courses covering (1) Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry and (2) history of mathematics: this requirement may be met by taking MTH 329, and MTH 306. Students must also include as electives the following Adolescence Education (EDS) course sequence offered by the Department of Education (24 credits):

Education Sequence (24 credits)

EDS 201Social Foundations of Secondary Education(RLA)

4

EDS 202Psychological Foundations of Secondary Education(RLA)

NOTE: EDP 220 is a requirement for NYS Certification. Students are encouraged to take this course prior to graduation.

Electives: 14-17 credits

(including courses in education, required for students interested in secondary education teacher certification)
