# Description of Mathematics

## Degrees Offered

• B.S. and Minor in Applied Mathematics
• B.A., B.S., and Minor in Mathematics
• B.A. and B.S. in Mathematics, Secondary Education
• M.S. in Mathematics (See the BSU Graduate Catalog.)
• M.S. in Mathematics Education (See the BSU Graduate Catalog.)

## Department Statement

Mathematics is concerned with abstraction, precision, patterns, and problemsolving
and is a theoretical discipline with a wide array of applications.
The requirements for majoring in Applied Mathematics and Mathematics
degrees are more flexible; they require a certain amount of breadth in
mathematical preparation but allow a student to choose which area or areas
of mathematics to study in more depth.

The Mathematics, Secondary Education degree prepares students to teach
mathematics at the junior high or senior high school level. It combines a
broad background in mathematics with a firm foundation in educational
theory and methodology.

The Mathematics, Secondary Education program combines content
knowledge, theories of learning and human development, study of
curriculum, and methodology, to help students develop the knowledge,
skills and dispositions essential for success in secondary school teaching.
The program is grounded in the conceptual framework of the professional
educator. Professional educators integrate complex roles and dispositions in
the service of diverse communities of learners, use effective approaches that
promote high levels of student achievement, and create environments that
prepare learners to be citizens who contribute to a complex world. Candidates
who complete this program have demonstrated evidence of meeting the Idaho
Beginning Teacher Standards and are eligible for recommendation for state
certification.

Students wishing to pursue this degree must meet the requirements and
standards for admission to teacher education, which are described fully under
the Department of Curriculum, Instruction, Students must meet all knowledge, skill, and
