The Indiana Wesleyan University Mathematics Education major from the School of Teacher Education is designed for students who love puzzles and patterns, statistics and probability, and reasoning and proofs. The program is also designed to meet the Indiana mathematics standards and has been recognized by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
A degree in Mathematics Education will equip you with the knowledge needed in your field of study, the skills necessary to convey that knowledge effectively to students, and the dispositions required to be a successful educator and difference-maker in the lives of your students and colleagues. IWU's program combines courses in history and foundations of math, discrete processes, calculus, linear algebra, mathematical modeling, and computer science, among others. The major also includes professional education courses that prepare students to teach in public and private middle- and high-school classrooms. Content-specific coursework and clinical field experiences will allow you to combine theory and practice as you expand your knowledge and develop your God-given gift of teaching.
If you sense a calling to bring a Christian worldview to your teaching career, you should consider majoring in Mathematics Education at Indiana Wesleyan University.
