Certification in Mathematics for Middle Grades and High School

Credit with a grade of at least C- in the content courses listed below is required. These are in addition to the UTeach courses in the Professional Development Sequence.

Students in the Math Teaching Option should see the teaching degree plans.

The following courses (or their equivalents) are required:

Content math courses for high school math certification

  • Complete calculus sequence
  • M 315C (Foundations, Functions and Regression Models)
  • M 325K (Discrete Mathematics) or M328K (Intro to Number Theory)
  • M 333L (Structure of Modern Geometry)
  • M 341 (Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory) or M 340L (Matrices and Matrix Calculations)
    • M 341 is restricted to math majors
    • Non-math majors take M 340L
  • M 358K (Applied Statistics)
  • M 362K (Probability I)
  • M 375D (Discovery: Intro Adv Std in Math) -- FALL ONLY
    • or M 343K (Intro Alg Struc) or M 373K (Alg Structures)

Content math courses for middle grades math certification

  • Calculus as required
  • M 315C (Foundations, Functions and Regression Models)
  • M 325K (Discrete Mathematics) or M328K (Intro to Number Theory)
  • M 333L (Structure of Modern Geometry)
  • M 358K (Applied Statistics) -- Lower-division statistics may count. M 316L is strongly recommended.
  • M 362K (Probability I) -- Lower-division probability may count.

Note: Students certifying in mathematics at the middle grades level also take EDP 363M and EDC 339E or EDC 339F in addition to the courses in the Professional Development sequence. The Apprentice Teaching placement must be in a middle grades classroom.
