Mathematics Education (Minor)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Minor


Program Summary

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 and states have done a good deal of work lately on raising wages and using bonuses to recruit teachers.

Licensure Notification


This program typically leads to licensure/certification and was designed to meet such qualifications for the state of Utah. Students who are or may be planning to pursue licensure/certification in any other U.S. state or territory may need to meet additional education requirements. This is not a reflection of SUU’s accreditation or quality, as each state and territory regulates their own education requirements for occupational licensure.

Students enrolled in a teacher preparation program may potentially be able to use a Utah educator license to obtain licensure through reciprocity. Additional information may be found through the Department of Teacher Education’s reciprocity table.

An overview of all of SUU’s programs that lead to licensure/certification and the programs’ current determination statuses may be found at www.suu.edu/provost/licensure.html.
