# 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.

**MATH 140:**Mathematical Concepts for Elementary Education I

**MATH 141:**Mathematical Concepts for Elementary Education II

**MATH 221:**Calculus I

**MATH 222:**Calculus II

**MATH 223:**Calculus III

**OR**

**MATH 233:**Linear Algebra I

**MATH 239:**Introduction to Mathematical Proof

**MATH 335:**Foundations of Geometry

**INTD 376:**Advanced Math Topics for Childhood and Early Childhood Education

And choose one from the following four courses:

**MATH 242:**Elements of Probability and Statistics**MATH 262:**Applied Statistics**MATH 341:**Probability and Applied Statistics (**prerequisite**: MATH 223)**MATH 361:**Statistics (**prerequisites**: MATH 223 & MATH 360)

Students are welcome to consult with advisors in the mathematics department for how to best plan their mathematics program.
