Course Descriptions

The major in Mathematics Education prepares students to teach the academic standards for Mathematics in grades eight through twelve. In addition to the curriculum requirements outlined, students pursuing this degree must meet the criteria for admission to the Teacher Education Program, Student Teaching, and the Kentucky and Alice Lloyd Teacher Standards. Upon completion of this program, students must meet other specified Education Professional Standards Board requirements in order to secure certification.  

Students in education must earn a 2.75 overall GPA in all coursework in order to graduate. Note also that in each of the following areas a 2.75 overall GPA is required as well as no grade lower than “C”: 1) education professional courses, 2) all subject matter and collateral courses.

Mathematics Education (Grades 8-12) Major Requirements

Students should become familiar with the requirements for their individual programs and work with their advisors to ensure that all degree requirements will be met. A guide sheet is extremely helpful in academic planning. Students wishing to major in Mathematics Education Grades 8-12 may access a downloadable version (pdf) of the guide sheet at the top of this page, or he or she may obtain one from his or her Faculty Advisor or from the Registrar. The student has the ultimate responsibility for seeing that all academic requirements are being met.
