Students who select this major will study the full range of calculus, continuous and discrete functions, geometry, algebra, and statistics. A special emphasis is placed on communicating these concepts using technology using cultural and historical perspectives from both the present and past. This major may be taken as a stand-alone program (without a teacher certification program). However, this major, when combined with the STEM Teaching or Secondary Education programs, is the most efficient pathway for students seeking teaching endorsement in secondary mathematics.
Admission to the major in the mathematics department will be considered after the first two-quarters of calculus are taken (MATH 172 and MATH 173). Students with credit for MATH 173 should contact the Mathematics Department to meet with a faculty advisor. Application forms are available from the mathematics department office. Students must meet with a mathematics faculty advisor before being considered for the mathematics majors or minor. Students must earn a minimum grade of C in any course that fulfills a major or minor requirement.
Students must earn a C or higher in each course in the major.
The Mathematics: Secondary Education BA, Mathematics (Small Plan) BS, or Applied Mathematics BS Majors partially satisfy the criteria for teaching endorsement in Mathematics (5-12), qualifying students to teach mathematics at the high school, middle, or junior high levels. Students who successfully complete one of these three majors with the listed elective restrictions and the STEM Teaching Program (an alternative to the Professional Education Program) are eligible to apply for Washington State teacher certification. Teacher certification candidates must receive a C grade or higher in all major and STEM Teaching Program courses, have a GPA of at least 3.0 for either the last 45 graded quarter credits or overall CWU/transfer cumulative, and meet all Washington State teacher certification requirements. See the secondary mathematics teaching advisor as soon as possible to develop a course of study.
