Mathematics at the Metroplex
This program began in Fall 2000, with offerings in Mesquite at A&M-Commerce's Metroplex facility at 2600 Motley Drive.
The program consists of 12 courses (36 credit hours) which can be completed in two years. The curriculum has two components:
- mathematics and education.
The mathematics component involves a choice of six courses chosen from a list of eight recently developed offerings—all of which are designed specifically for middle and secondary school mathematics teachers. Each course involves hands-on activities with graphing calculators and computer software.
The education component consists of six education courses, with a required core of four courses and a choice of two other education offerings. Some students may elect to take just the four core education courses and seek credit for certain forms of high-quality professional development (approved on a case-by-case basis).
While all courses will be offered in Mesquite, substitutions may be allowed for courses taken in Commerce.
And coming soon: information about the newly-approved Master Mathematics Teacher certificate program—application process available here.
