B.A. Mathematics 2007-08 Catalog
Secondary Licensure - Track 2

Student: ID Number: Advisor:

Note: This emphasis exceeds the necessary coursework to meet the "highly qualified" requirement as set forth by the State of Colorado. It does not, however, meet the recommendations of the Mathematical Association of America for someone pursuing a career as a high school teacher (9-12), nor does it meet the requirements for secondary licensure in all states (i.e. a true B.A. in Mathematics).

This degree track is designed to meet the needs of middle school teachers,would provide adequate preparation for a high school teacher in a rural environment, and exceeds the 24-credit hours of content benchmark set by the State of Colorado for secondary licensure.

Course Hours Semester Grade
MATH 120 - Single Variable Calculus I 5
MATH 121 - Single Variable Calculus II 5
