Concentration in Mathematics
for Elementary Mathematics

All majors in Elementary Education --Childhood and Early Childhood--must complete a concentration in a liberal arts discipline. Our concentration is a focused sequence of courses (30 credits) in which the elementary education major experiences the core areas of mathematics: calculus, algebra, geometry, and probability and statistics. The concentration prepares the future teacher for further specialization in mathematics education or for deeper study in mathematics.
