    MAE 6947, Graduate Internship: Mathematics Education

    Course Description

    This seminar accompanies the graduate internship in mathematics education and provides teacher candidates an opportunity to interact with peers and university faculty regarding classroom experiences.

  3. Justification

    A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.

    At present, graduate interns have not been required to enroll in a seminar to accompany their internship. This is in contrast to the undergraduate prospective teachers. The faculty believe that graduate students completing an internship would also benefit

    B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?

    This course is required in the MAT in Middle Grades Mathematics.

    C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?


    D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)

    Doctorate in mathematics education
