We currently have three different undergraduate preparation programs for the various levels of mathematics education, two of which lead to certification.
B.A. in Education with a major in Elementary Education - Our competitive Elementary Education Program is chaired by Dr. Mary Shake. The model for the early elementary education program presumes a collaborative relationship between school and university personnel focused on ensuring a high level of individual attention to the mentoring and socialization of teacher candidates. An area of specialization is now required for the program. Available areas of specialization are: Language and Writing, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts, and Special Education/LBD. For application and admission information please visit: http://www.uky.edu/Education/applications.html The curriculum contract for the elementary education program can be found here.
Dr. Molly Fisher and Mrs. Bev Dean work with the students in the elementary education program in regards to the mathematics education. Math courses required in the Elementary Education Program:
B.A. in Education with a major in Middle School Education - Our competitive Middle School Program is chaired by Ms. Tammy Board. The Middle School Program emphasizes the development of professionally trained specialists in teaching early adolescents. As such, the program models team teaching and collaborative learning. Active learning experiences are emphasized, as are real-world connections. Throughout the program, students are encouraged to gather data continuously and to use this data in planning effective instruction. Two areas of specialization are required for the program. Available areas of specialization are: English and Communication, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Special Education/LBD. For application and admission information please visit: http://www.uky.edu/Education/applications.html The curriculum contract for the Middle School Program can be found here.
Dr. Xin Ma teaches the Middle School Mathematics Methods course. Math courses required in the Middle School Education Program
B.A. in Education with a major in Secondary Education, Option: Mathematics Education - The Secondary Mathematics Education Program is chaired by Dr. Margaret Mohr-Schroeder. The Secondary Mathematics Education Program emphasizes the content knowledge needed for secondary mathematics teachers to be successful. No certification is awarded with this B.A. Students interested in certification at the secondary level need to complete the Masters in Education with Initial Certification (MIC). The secondary mathematics education program requires 36 hours of mathematics plus 15 hours of Program Related Studies. A Survey of Secondary Mathematics Curriculum and a Field Experiences courses are the highlights of the Program Related Studies courses. The curriculum contract for the Secondary Mathematics Education Program can be found here.
