New Jersey Middle School Math Endorsement

Printable List of Courses for Middle School Math Endorsement (DOC)

TCNJ’s Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers courses that are appropriate for undergraduate pre-service K-5 teachers or current/certified K-5 teachers seeking the middle school endorsement in Mathematics (“elementary teacher with subject matter specialization in mathematics”).

Contact Dr. Cathy Liebars at liebars@tcnj.edu for more information about the courses listed below.

Courses:

Undergraduate Level Designation                                                Graduate Level Designation

MAT 111     Number Theory and Systems for Middle School Teachers            Math 591

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of numbers and operations.  Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics.  Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation for more formal work in number theory will be integrated with the mathematics content.

MAT 112     Data Analysis and Probability for Middle School Teachers          Math 592

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of data analysis and probability.  Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics.  Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation for more formal work in data analysis and probability will be integrated with the mathematics content.

MAT 114    Patterns, Functions and Algorithms for Middle School Teachers      Math 594

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of patterns, functions, and algebra. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics. Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation for more formal algebraic work will be integrated with the mathematics content.

MAT 115     Geometry for Middle School Teachers                               Math 595

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of geometry. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics. Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation for more formal work in geometry will be integrated with the mathematics content.

MAT 117     Discrete Math for Middle School Teachers                          Math 597

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of discrete mathematics. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore these topics. Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation for more formal work in discrete math will be integrated with the mathematics content.

 MAT 118     Concepts of Calculus for Middle School Teachers                  Math 598

This course gives the middle school mathematics teacher a deeper understanding of mathematics through the study of calculus. Physical materials, models, technology, and middle school curricula will be used to explore the topics. Exploration of ways to engage middle school students meaningfully in experiences that lay a strong foundation of the ideas of calculus will be integrated with the mathematics content.
