Undergraduate Programs

The Mathematics for Educators minor equips teachers with the skills and strategies to make math exciting and engaging for elementary and middle school students. By emphasizing an untapped wealth of engaging mathematics below the calculus level, we provide teachers-in-training with a broad knowledge base they can draw from when making lesson plans.

Students are prepared for the California Subject Examinations for Teachers in Mathematics by completing course work in number theory, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and calculus.
