Minor in Mathematics for Middle School Teachers

This mathematics minor is intended for those who plan to enter a Graduate Teacher Education Program and be licensed in teaching Middle School Mathematics (grades 5-9).

Requirements:
 

A student must complete the following program (12 credits must be upper-division; 9 of these 12 upper-division credits must be taken in residence at PSU):

 Courses Credits
MTH 211, 212, 213 Foundations of Elementary Mathematics I, II, III 12
MTH 491 Experimental Probability for Middle School Teachers 4
MTH 493 Geometry for Middle School Teachers 4
MTH 494 Arithmetic and Algebraic Structures for Middle School Teachers 4
MTH 495 Historical Topics in Mathematics for Middle School Teachers 4
MTH 496 Concepts of Calculus for Middle School Teachers 4
MTH 497 Mathematics in the Middle School Classroom 4

Only grades of C-, P, or above count toward satisfying the requirements. No more than three courses with a grade of P may be counted toward these requirements. The prerequisites for the MTH 490's courses are MTH 111-112 and MTH 211-212-213.

For course projections, see the Course Planning Guide.


Students who are interested in this program and who already have a Bachelors degree should look at the companion program for graduate students, the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics for Middle School Teachers. PSU does not allow adding a minor after the Bachelor's degree has been conferred.
