Department & Faculty Information  

Mathematics Preparation Programs


The Department of Mathematics offers two preparation programs for future mathematics teachers; the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics and the Subject Matter Program in Foundational-level Mathematics. Undergraduate students interested in teaching mathematics at the middle or high school level are strongly encouraged to complete the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics. Completion of the Single Subject Matter Program in Mathematics establishes subject matter competency in mathematics for future teachers to teach all mathematics at the K-12 level. Completion of the Subject Matter Program in Foundational-level Mathematics establishes subject matter competency in mathematics for future teachers to teach mathematics at the middle school level and for some mathematics courses at the high school level.

Single Subject Matter Preparation Program in Foundational-level Mathematics


Completion of the Subject Matter Preparation Program in Foundational-level Mathematics is certified by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. In addition to the required mathematics courses, a year of education courses and practice teaching is required before the California Secondary Teaching Credential in Foundational-level Mathematics can be granted. Forty-eight quarter units are required in the Subject Matter Preparation Program in Foundational-level Mathematics. Current holders of a California Multiple Subjects Credential or Single Subject Credential in a field other than mathematics will also need to complete additional Teacher Education courses to add an authorization in Foundational-level Mathematics. For additional information, contact the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science: North Science 337; 510-885-4011; e-mail: mathcs@csueastbay.edu; website: http://www20.csueastbay.edu/csci/departments/math-cs/index.html.
