Suggested Course Sequence for Mathematics/Childhood Education
The following is a general schedule for the Mathematics/Childhood Education major. Check all course descriptions for prerequisites before planning your course schedule. Other course sequences are possible. Consult your advisor or the Mathematics or Education Program Coordinator. Note also that one can introduce flexibility into this recommended sequence by shifting requirement slots around
to allow one to pursue other courses of personal interest or compensate for scheduling conflicts. A student interested in also completing the Middle Childhood certification should consult with her advisor and the faculty in the intended area of focus about a possible sequence of courses.
