How will your UW-Eau Claire education prepare you to be successful as a math teacher? The faculty here focus on some specific areas to get you ready for lifelong success in teaching math:
To prepare to teach secondary school mathematics (grades 5-12), you can choose between a comprehensive major with 60 credits or a traditional major with 36 semester credits. Both options include the basic sequence in Calculus (Math 114, 215, 216), Linear Algebra (Math 324), Modern Geometry (Math 330), Probability and Statistics (Math 345), and Abstract Algebra (Math 425).
This complements an academic major in another field. You'll take 24 credits including Calculus I and II (Math 114 and 215), Linear Algebra (Math 324), Modern Geometry (Math 330), Mathematical Probability and Statistics (Math 345), and Abstract Algebra (Math 425).
If your passion lies in teaching younger students, this minor prepares you to teach elementary and middle school mathematics. As an Elementary Education major with a mathematics minor, your employment potential is significantly enhanced. You'll take Calculus I, a sequence in the content, methods and curriculum of grades 1-9 (Math 201, 202, 303 304), and upper level courses in mathematics including Discrete Math or Patterns of Problem Solving (Math 314 or Math 365), Abstract Algebra for Elementary School Teachers or Number Theory (Math 322 or Math 341), Geometry (Math 330).
