Mathematics & Technology with Teaching, B.S.
Learn more about the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Technology with Teaching.
The B.S. with Teaching in Mathematics and Technology is part of Temple's innovative "TUteach" secondary education teachertraining program. The B.S. with Teaching provides broad training in mathematics and prepares students for a career in secondary school teaching or an entry level position as a mathematics specialist. The education courses in the B.S. with Teaching include supervised teaching in school district classrooms and emphasize inquirybased approaches to learning. Students in the B.S. with Teaching degree program become eligible for a Pennsylvania teacher certification when they complete all the requirements for the degree that include theoretical and practical courses in education specifically designed for science and mathematics majors. In order to be recommended for Pennsylvania teacher certification, students must graduate with:
 a B.S. with Teaching degree
 meet GPA and testing requirements of the state of Pennsylvania.
Students will be scheduled once each semester to meet with the TUteach advisor to ensure that students have knowledge of academic programming, internships opportunities, and testing options that include test preparation. The state of Pennsylvania has specific candidacy requirements. The TUteach advisor will also help the students complete and submit the candidacy documents. All students joining the program in their freshman year must complete the PAPA examination or acquire the PAPA waiver within their first 72 credits. Transfer students, from within Temple and those from other institutions, will build a tailored program with the academic and testing benchmarks structured for efficient degree completion with the TUteach advisor. Students are encouraged to complete the appropriate PRAXIS II examination prior to student teaching. Students are encouraged to take internship courses to expand their teaching portfolio or select elective courses that will extend their knowledge of science and teaching practice.

 University Requirements (124 total s.h.)
 MATH 0701 (4 s.h.) and/or ENG 0701 (4 s.h.), if required by placement testing.
 All Temple students must take a minimum of two writingintensive courses at Temple as part of their major. Following is a list of courses that can be used to satisfy the writingintensive requirement:
Course List Code Title Credit Hours Introduction to Modern Algebra Senior Problem Solving Differentiated Literacy Instruction in the Disciplines (grades 712)  Students must complete the General Education (GenEd) requirements.
 See the General Education section of the Undergraduate Bulletin for the GenEd curriculum.
 Students who complete TUteach majors typically receive a waiver for 1 Human Behavior (GB), 2 Science & Technology (GS) and 1 Quantitative Literacy (GQ) GenEd courses.
 Students must satisfy general Temple University residency requirements.

College Requirements
 90 credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST) or the College of Liberal Arts (CLA).
 45 Upper Level (2000+) credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST) or the College of Liberal Arts (CLA).
 First Year Seminar Requirement: All students in the College of Science & Technology (CST) are required to take a 1 credit first year seminar course, SCTC 1001 CST First Year Seminar. Other courses that fulfill this requirement may be found on the CST College Requirements page. Only one course in this category may count towards graduation.

Major Requirements for Bachelor of Science (98101 s.h.)^{1}
At least 10 courses required for the major must be completed at Temple. At least 7 Math, 2 Engineering, and 3 Education courses must be completed at Temple. Though not required, students are strongly encouraged to increase training and field work experience by enrolling in SCTC 1385, SCTC 2385, or SCTC 2389. Students will also benefit from directed laboratory projects offered through SCTC 3185. These courses are offered every semester.Course List Code Title Credit Hours Mathematics MATH 1041 Calculus I 4 or MATH 1941 Honors Calculus I MATH 1042 Calculus II 4 or MATH 1942 Honors Calculus II MATH 2021 Functions and Modeling (S) 3 MATH 2043 Calculus III 4 or MATH 2943 Honors Calculus III MATH 2061 Euclidean Geometry (S) 3 MATH 2101 Linear Algebra 34 or MATH 2103 Linear Algebra with Computer Lab MATH 2111 Basic Concepts of Math 3 MATH 3003 Theory of Numbers 3 MATH 3031 Probability Theory I 3 MATH 3096 Introduction to Modern Algebra 3 MATH 3137 Real & Complex Analysis I (F) 3 MATH 3138 Real & Complex Analysis II (S) 3 MATH 4096 Senior Problem Solving 3 One Mathematics 3000+ elective 3 Physics or Chemistry Select one of the following sets: ^{2} 8 Elementary Classical Physics I or PHYS 1961Honors Elementary Classical Physics I or PHYS 2021General Physics I Honors General Physics I

All students are strongly recommended to check with the TUteach Advisor in the College of Science and Technology, to affirm the requirements that pertain to their specific major. In addition, students should check the Undergraduate Bulletin web site for the most current information about these programs, or the TUteach web site. It is also recommended that all students meet with an advisor before enrolling in classes specific to these majors and leading to certification as a teacher. This is to assure that a candidate's intended program of study will be compatible with the new requirements.
^{2} Most engineering concentration courses require either Chemistry or Physics as a prerequisite, so students should choose the course that best prepares them for their intended track. The Environment and Bioengineering tracks cannot be completed without the chemistry sequence, and the Robotics and Energy tracks cannot be completed without the physics sequence.
^{3} All students are required to take a minimum of one credit.
