Mathematics with Teaching

 

The B.S. with Teaching program in Mathematics is part of TUteach, Temple's innovative teacher-training program.  The program provides solid mathematical foundation and pedagogical training necessary for success as a high school mathematics teacher.  Students who complete the B.S. with Teaching will meet Pennsylvania teacher certification requirements via theoretical and practical courses in education specifically designed for science and mathematics majors. The education courses in the B.S. with Teaching degree program include practice teaching in school district classrooms and emphasize inquiry-based approaches to learning.
