## Why Choose the Mathematics Education Program?

The Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education provides a strong background in mathematics while introducing undergraduate students to the field of education. Upon completion of this degree students are prepared to enter a graduate licensure program to earn their teaching credentials.

The program includes a wide array of courses meant to expand studentâ€™s mathematical content knowledge from calculus to upper level mathematics. Students also take two courses that allow them a deeper understanding of familiar mathematical topics, as well as a capstone course in which they study high school mathematics from an advanced viewpoint.

In addition, students take other courses with accompanying field experiences designed to provide them with a foundation in the educational process. During each practicum, (i.e., field experience), each student spends time in a middle or high school math classroom observing teachers, interacting with students, and learning how students think about and understand mathematics.

Thus, students who earn the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education graduate with a solid understanding of mathematics and are ready to delve into preparing themselves for classroom teaching.

## Admission

Students must apply for admission to Wright State University.

### Declaring your Major

Students who intend to enter into the Bachelor of Science degree program but do not meet the criteria to be directly admitted from high school will be admitted as a PRE major. Once the student has satisfied the following criteria, they can be admitted into the degree program:

- Earned a grade of "C" or higher in the following courses: PHY 2400, PHY 2410
- Completion of at least 15 semester hours with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8.

Current students at Wright State University who are interested in adding or changing their major can also be admitted into the degree program by meeting the above criteria.

### Articulation (Transfer) Agreements

Wright State has articulation agreements with a number of institutions. Articulation agreements will assure you a seamless transfer from one institution to another.
