Secondary Education Mathematics Major

Our Secondary Education Mathematics major is a true partnership program. First, we believe that a professional teacher must have a strong foundation in the theory and practice of both education and mathematics. The Education Department offers a curriculum based on developing the skills and techniques which research has shown produces effective teaching and learning. The Mathematics curriculum provides a broad basis of mathematics theory presented in secondary schools. This includes an appreciation of the historical and cultural factors that represent mathematics as an ongoing human activity.
