Mathematics with Teaching, B.S.
Learn more about the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Teaching.
The B.S. with Teaching in Mathematics is part of Temple's innovative "TUteach" secondary education teachertraining program. The B.S. with Teaching provides broad training in mathematics and prepares students for a career in secondary school teaching or an entry level position in a mathematical field. 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:
 a B.S. with Teaching degree
 meet GPA and testing requirements of the state of Pennsylvania.
Students will be scheduled once each semester to meet with the TUteach advisor to ensure that students have knowledge of academic programming, internships opportunities, and testing options that include test preparation. The state of Pennsylvania has specific candidacy requirements. The TUteach advisor will also help the students complete and submit the candidacy documents. All students joining the program in their freshman year must complete the PAPA examination or acquire the PAPA waiver within their first 72 credits. Transfer students, from within Temple and those from other institutions, will build a tailored program with the academic and testing benchmarks structured for efficient degree completion with the TUteach advisor. Students are encouraged to complete the appropriate PRAXIS II examination prior to student teaching. Students are encouraged to take internship courses to expand their teaching portfolio or select elective courses that will extend their knowledge of science and teaching practice.

Summary of Requirements for the Degree
 University Requirements (124 total s.h.)

Students must complete all University requirements including those listed below.
 All Temple students must take a minimum of two writingintensive courses at Temple as part of their major. The specific writingintensive course options for this major are:
Course List Code Title Credit Hours Introduction to Modern Algebra Modern Algebra Senior Problem Solving Differentiated Literacy Instruction in the Disciplines (grades 712)  Students must complete the General Education (GenEd) requirements.
 See the General Education section of the Undergraduate Bulletin for the GenEd curriculum.
 Students who complete TUteach majors receive a waiver for 1 Human Behavior (GB), 2 Science & Technology (GS) and 1 Quantitative Literacy (GQ) GenEd courses.
 Students must satisfy general Temple University residency requirements.


College Requirements
 45 Upper Level (2000+) credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST), the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), or the College of Engineering (ENG).
 90 credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST), the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), or the College of Engineering.
 All students in the College of Science and Technology are required to take a one credit first year seminar. SCTC 1001 CST First Year Seminar is the appropriate course option for every entering first year CST major. Transfer students should use SCTC 2001 CST Transfer Seminar to fulfill this requirement. Other courses that fulfill this requirement may be found on the CST College Requirements page.

Major Requirements for Bachelor of Science (9092 s.h.)^{1}
At least 9 courses required for the major must be completed at Temple. At least 7 Math courses and 3 Education courses must be completed at Temple. Though not required, students are strongly encouraged to increase training and field work experience by enrolling in SCTC 1385, SCTC 2385, or SCTC 2389. Students will also benefit from directed laboratory projects offered through SCTC 3185. These courses are offered every semester.Course List Code Title Credit Hours Computer Programming Select one of the following: 34 Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming in Python or CIS 1951Honors Introduction to Problem Solving and Programming in Python Computer Programming in C Program Design and Abstraction or CIS 1968Honors Program Design and Abstraction Computing in MATLAB
