EC-4 Teacher Certification at UT Arlington
UTA offers initial teacher certification through both undergraduate degrees and
postbaccalaureate programs in the College of
Education. For full details, see the corresponding section of the UTA
Undergraduate Catalog
and the appropriate advising link on the CoEd home page.
All undergraduates seeking certification in grades EC-4 must take the following
sequence of 3 mathematics courses, intended to prepare students
mathematically to teach mathematics:
- Math
1330: Arithmetical Problem Solving, a first course in problem solving
for preservice mathematics teachers, including topics in place value,
operations, representations of numbers, and number theory. Prerequisite:
college algebra (or equivalent placement) and consent of instructor (clearance
required to register).
- Math
1331: Geometric Inference and Reasoning, a problem-solving course in
two- and three-dimensional geometry and measurement. Prerequisite: Math
1330.
- Math
1332: Functions, Data and Applications, a problem-solving course in
mathematical modeling and data analysis, including some probability and
statistics and use of modeling software. Prerequisite: Math 1330.
Students must also take one of the following two methods courses, intended
to prepare students pedagogically to teach mathematics:
- ECED 4311: Math and Science for Young Children,
an early childhood (preK-4) combined math and science methods course.
at the undergraduate and graduate levels, respectively.
ECED 4311 is part of the ECED internship block (see course catalog).
- BEEP 4311:
Math and Science in Dual Language Settings, a version of ECED 4311
for students seeking certification for bilingual classrooms.
BEEP 4311 is part of the BEEP internship block.
- ECED 5319: Early Education: Instructional Strategies I,
a graduate analogue of ECED 4311.
A full list of required classes for initial certification at the EC-4 level
can be obtained from an advisor. This page lists only those related to
mathematics education.
