  1. Using Specialized Content Courses to Facilitate Pathways for Teaching Mathematics in the Middle School Babette M. Benken, Ph.D. Department of Mathematics & Statistics CSU, Long Beach CMC-South 2009

  2. Pathways to Teaching Mathematics in the Middle School • Add-on to existing Multiple Subject Teaching Credential • Subject Matter Authorization: 32 units college level math • Single Subject Credential in Foundational Mathematics (SSFM): CSET I & II, secondary math methods course • Obtain new Single Subject Teaching Credential • SSFM: CSET I & II (in addition to all other credential requirements) • Full credential: CSET I, II, & III (in addition to all other credential requirements)

  3. Specialized Content Courses for Teachers–Benefits • Provides alternative sequence for 32 units needed for Subject Matter Authorization • Includes content needed for CSET exams • Explores content in ways appropriate for teaching secondary mathematics (e.g., focus on concepts) • Models/examines some teaching strategies for middle school mathematics (e.g., integrate technology and cooperative projects)

  4. Specialized Content Courses for Teachers–Brief Descriptions • MTED 110–Real Number System • MTED 205–Probability & Stats • MTED 301–Computer Applications • MTED 312–Geometry & Measurement • MTED 402–Problem Solving Applications • MTED 415–History of Math • MTED 420–Number Theory • MTED 424–Algebraic Structures • MTED 425–Functions, Models, Calculus • MTED 430–Connections & Reasoning

  5. Specialized Content Courses for Teachers–CSET alignment CSET I: MTED 420 & MTED 424 CSET II: MTED 205 & MTED 312 CSET III: MTED 415 & MTED 425
