Mathematics & Computer Science with Teaching
The B.S. with Teaching in Mathematics and Computer Science is part of Temple's innovative "TUteach" teachertraining program. The B.S. with Teaching provides broad training in Mathematics and Computer Science, and prepares students for a career in secondary school teaching. The education courses in the B.S. with Teaching include supervised teaching in school district classrooms and emphasize inquirybased approaches to learning. Students in the B.S. with Teaching degree program become eligible for a Pennsylvania teacher certification when they complete all the requirements for the degree that include theoretical and practical courses in education specifically designed for science and mathematics majors. In order to be recommended for Pennsylvania teacher certification, students must graduate with 1) a B.S with Teaching degree 2) a minimum overall 3.0 GPA and 3) earn passing scores on the staterequired Praxis I and Praxis II tests.
Students are encouraged to stay on track to graduate with an overall GPA of 3.0 by meeting once each semester with a TUteach advisor and by meeting the prerequisite GPA for required courses. GPA and prerequisite course requirements insure that students are well prepared for the significant amounts of supervised classroom teaching required in advanced courses. Attention is specifically directed to the prerequisites required to enroll in ProjectBased Instruction (MAES 4189 or SCES 4189), an advanced course required in all TUteach degrees and recommended to be taken in either the fifth or seventh semester. The prerequisites for this course include entering the course with a GPA of 3.0 and having earned passing scores on the Praxis I Test ("Basic Knowledge:" reading, writing, and mathematics).

Calculation of Major GPA
The list of courses that are used to calculate major GPA is determined by the department. Students should consult with their academic advising unit for the applicable courses. In general, courses that could not apply toward the major as an elective or a required course are not counted for the major GPA. This would include Math 1022, for example.
Distinction in Major
To graduate with a Distinction in Major, students are required to achieve a 3.5 GPA for the aggregate of courses required for the B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science with Teaching.
