SHOW MIDDLE SCHOOLERS WHAT MATH CAN DO. Excellent mathematicians prepared to engage middle school students in classroom settings are in high demand. We will equip you with not only the fundamental knowledge of problem-solving and logic, but also with the ability to translate that knowledge into effective lessons for your students.
Knowledge of mathematical theorems, critical problem-solving, and classroom management is useless without the opportunity to put it into action. During your time here at Trinity, you will have the chance to engage in classroom observation, lesson planning, and student teaching at local middle schools.
Most students complete their degree in 4 years. Major requirements total 69 hours. This includes 44 hours of required Professional Education courses and 25 hours of Mathematics courses.
You can earn an Illinois Professional Educator License through this program, which allows you to teach at the middle grades level (grades 5-8). This degree is a great option for transfer students, as it can be completed in two years after your transfer to Trinity.
The Middle Grades Mathematics Education major will prepare you with the knowledge, skills, and direction to teach middle grades (grades 5 – 8) students, and to model Christian values in your personal and professional life. Classroom instruction at Trinity provides the academic foundation necessary for teaching middle school mathematics. When you successfully complete the major, you are eligible to receive an Illinois Professional Educator License that is valid for teaching at the middle grades level (grades 5 – 8).
