Math & Computer Science for Secondary School Teachers (grades 7-12)
This major requires a core of courses from mathematics and computer science. Graduates of the program will be equipped to teach both mathematics and computer science in secondary schools through a fundamentally strong background in mathematics and computer science.
The objectives of the math and computer science major are to:
Provide secondary teachers-in-training a program that will adequately prepare and encourage them to teach the expected mathematics and computing courses to students in middle and high school math and computer science programs.
Train math teachers to develop each of the competencies required by the State Board of Education for licensure in math education.
Broaden the scope of mathematics and computing to secondary school teachers in training, allowing them to develop methods in which to relay the content material to their students so that the students can fully understand what is being taught.
Provide secondary teachers in training with the background so they can assume responsibility for managing the computing facilities at their school.
