Subject Matter Preparation Program in Mathematics

The Single Subject Matter Preparation (SSMP) Program in Mathematics consists of approved mathematics courses selected to provide undergraduate students the academic background necessary to qualify them to teach mathematics in grades seven through twelve. To obtain a Single Subject Credential in Mathematics the student must:

  1. Obtain an undergraduate degree.
  2. Demonstrate subject competence in mathematics in one of two ways: Earn a passing score on a mathematics examination that has been adopted by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) or complete a commission approved SSMP program. The SSMP Program from CBU is an approved CTC program.
  3. Complete a teaching credential program.

Students interested in the Subject Matter Preparation Program should contact their Faculty Advisor in the Mathematics Department. Students seeking a teaching credential should contact the Teacher Education Credential Program within the School of Education. (Also see the Single Subject Credential  section for the Professional Methods Program for Single Subject Credential Students.)
