This 18-hour graduate certificate program may be taken as a stand-alone certificate or as the content concentration of the M.S. in Education: Content Area Studies Concentration. Some students may have completed Master’s programs in fields that may not include mathematics courses, such as in education. This Post-baccalaureate certificate meets the needs of these individuals by helping them advance their mathematical preparation for teaching. Further, the 18 credit hours of mathematics required for this certificate program provides the necessary mathematical background needed for teaching dual enrollment and college courses.
MATH 600. Foundations of the Number System (3)
MATH 623. Algebraic Reasoning and Mathematical Structures (3)
MATH 625. Mathematical Analysis and Modeling (3)
MATH 630. Algebra and Functions for Secondary Teachers (3)
MATH 635. Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry (3)
STAT 644. Applied Statistics for Teachers (3)
Applicants for the certificate must meet existing admissions standards for the M.S. in Education: Content Area Studies Concentration graduate program, with Mathematics Education option. We anticipate that course offerings will be available on the Radford University campus and also by distance learning via teleconferencing to sites such as the Roanoke Higher Education Center, Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center, and/or the New College Institute.
