In order to earn a California teaching credential, students will be required to pass the CSET Single-Subject Mathematics Exam and complete their student teaching requirement (EDUC 566, EDUC 581, EDUC 582, EDUC 583). Students should refer to teh Teacher Education Professional Sequence Requirements listed in the Humanities and Teacher Education Division for more information. Recommended schedule for first two years:
Note that Math 320: Transitions to Abstract Mathematics, is a prerequisite for all upper-division courses. Since upper-division courses are offered every other year, students will generally need to take some in their Junior, and some in their Senior year. For this reason, it is extremely important for mathematics majors to take Math 320 during the Spring of their sophomore year if they hope to graduate in four years. |
