The Secondary Education – Mathematics major is designed for students who plan to teach Mathematics at middle, junior or high school level or for graduate studies in the field. The degreewill prepare students to become state certified to teach the subject at any secondary level and help to address shortages of secondary math educators in Utah. Graduates will not only understand the art of teaching but also have a deep content knowledge of Mathematics. Graduates of this program are able to accurately interpret and translate pictorial and descriptive information into mathematical statements; solve problems quantitatively and communicate results clearly; demonstrate understanding of numeric, algebraic and geometric reasoning; and, demonstrate computational skills in areas of applied mathematics.
