Mathematics Secondary Education
to B.A. Mathematics Education
An opportunity to gain an associate degree from Delaware Tech and a bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware.
YOUR PATH TO A BACHELOR'S DEGREE
Delaware Tech has established agreements with four-year colleges and universities that connect Delaware Tech associate degree programs with bachelor's degree programs to create smooth transfer opportunities for you. These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.
THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM
Delaware Tech's associate degree program in Mathematics Secondary Education offers a curriculum that has rigorous preparation in mathematics and develops competencies in proven instructional strategies. The student will be prepared to transfer to a bachelor's degree program that leads to a teaching career in middle or high school mathematics, or those who are not interested in pursuing a teaching career may transfer to a baccalaureate program in Mathematical Sciences.
The University of Delaware's Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics Education program is designed to prepare competent secondary school mathematics teachers. Students in the program will acquire mathematical knowledge and develop mathematical reasoning and thinking skills necessary for teaching mathematics in secondary schools. Students are exposed to not only the current reform ideas in mathematics education, but also to the appropriate use of technology as learning and teaching tool in mathematics classrooms. Students who complete this program are eligible for certification to teach mathematics (grades 7-12) in most of the states in the United States.
