Mathematics Education K-5

The Mathematics Education K-5 Certificate is a culturally responsive program designed to provide K-5 teachers with a deeper understanding of mathematical content and pedagogy. This program emphasizes nontraditional, hands-on methods and approaches providing both rigor and pedagogy. It is designed to help teachers develop a deeper understanding of the mathematics they teach, build their mathematical knowledge, and develop the habits of mind of a mathematical thinker and problem solver. Topics addressed include: problem solving; numeration and operations; algebra and functions; geometry and measurement; data analysis; statistics and probability; and the use of technology for teaching and learning mathematics. Problem Solving, Reasoning, Communication, and Connections as emphasized in state and national standards will be incorporated in all courses in the program. It is expected that those enrolled in the program will complete it in 18 months.

Mathematics Education K-8

The Mathematics Education (K-8) Certificate is a culturally responsive program designed to provide K-8 teachers with a deeper understanding of mathematical content and pedagogy. The courses will emphasize non-traditional, hands-on methods and approaches providing both rigor and pedagogy. Topics addressed include: problem solving; numeration and operations; algebra and functions; geometry and measurement; data analysis; statistics and probability; and calculus and trigonometry. ED S608 and ED S614 are offered on Juneau campus during summer session. Remaining courses in the program may be offered by e-Learning. It is expected that those enrolled in the program will complete it in 18–24 months.
