Mathematics major and TARTANS rural teacher corps member Nathan Schroeder '21 presents his vision for tying mathematics into the local community.How might we help high school students recognize the creativity and relevance in math? Our students learn how to meet this challenge in Monmouth’s mathematics teacher education program.

A two-part approach

To become a high school math teacher through our program, students will major in mathematics and take courses in educational studies for teacher licensure. Through this approach, students will deepen and broaden their knowledge of math through their major while learning research-based methods for teaching mathematical concepts to high school students through educational studies coursework.

Community connection

Community is an integral part of teacher preparation at Monmouth. Students’ time in the preparation program involves working closely with an area high school math teacher during practicum work in their classroom. The preparation at Monmouth will conclude with a semester-long student teaching experience in a high school math classroom.
