Return to: School of Education and Professional Licensure  

This five-course certificate is designed to expand the middle school mathematics teacher’s repertoire of instructional strategies and resources. Using the Common Core State Standards and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics content and process standards as a framework, students in these courses explore key topics in a well-balanced middle school program, including number systems and operations; geometric thinking and measurement; algebraic reasoning, functions, and equations; and data, probability, and statistical reasoning. The emphases of the program are the proportional reasoning and algebraic thinking skills critical to student success in high school mathematics as well as methods for assessing mathematics skills and knowledge, addressing misconceptions, and engaging students through mathematical modeling and multiple representations.
