Elementary Education Major

with a Concentration in Mathematics

Roughly half of Elmhurst’s mathematics majors enter the teaching profession, and with good reason; mathematics teachers are in extremely high demand. At Elmhurst, we’ve created an integrated major program specially designed to train future mathematics teachers and satisfy state teacher certification requirements.

Students who major in elementary education with a concentration in mathematics must complete:

MTH 325 Mathematical Concepts for Elementary Teachers I
MTH 345 Elementary Statistics or MTH 346 Statistics for Scientists
One course from the MTH 132 Elementary Functions, 151-152 Calculus I, II sequence
MTH 326 Mathematical Concepts for Elementary Teachers II or MTH 331 Foundations of Geometry

Additional mathematics courses to meet the department requirement of 18 semester hours in mathematics

Students wishing to be certified to teach grades 6-8 and have a concentration in mathematics must complete:

MTH 151 Calculus I or MTH 152 Calculus II
MTH 301 Discrete Mathematics
MTH 325 Mathematical Concepts for Elementary Teachers I
MTH 331Foundations of Geometry
MTH 345 Elementary Statistics or MTH 346 Statistics for Scientists
MTH 441The Teaching of Middle School Mathematics

Students interested in certification in elementary education with a concentration in mathematics should identify themselves to both the Department of Education and the Department of Mathematics and confer periodically with advisors in both departments.
