The Mathematics Education minor is designed to give students the required mathematical and pedagogical knowledge to be effective school teachers. Mathematics courses together with required Education courses satisfy course requirements for Level III Endorsement in the state of Utah. Student seeking this endorsement will also pass a Praxis subject exam and will apply to the Utah State Board of Education for licensure. Mathematical content knowledge is assessed through classroom performance and through a comprehensive examination. Teaching effectiveness is assessed through observations and evaluations of a cooperating teacher in a secondary school, a supervising SUU Math professor, and a supervising Education professor. There is a tremendous nationwide shortage in Secondary Mathematics educators.
All courses must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better to be counted in the minor.
