Secondary Mathematics (120 credits)

Offered by: Integrated Studies in Ed     Degree: Bachelor of Education

Program Requirements

The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) – Secondary Mathematics program requires 120 credits and leads to teacher certification. Students who have not completed Quebec CEGEP, French Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, or at least one year of university studies prior to commencing the B.Ed. must also complete a minimum of 30 credits of Freshman courses (in addition to the 120 credits for the program) for a total of 150 credits.

The aim of the B.Ed. Secondary Education program is to prepare strong beginning teachers for the secondary school level. This integrated program consists of academic studies, professional studies, and school-based practicum components. All of this is supported by studies in pedagogy, curriculum, and educational foundations.

The Secondary Mathematics program provides students with the learning opportunities needed to become proficient Mathematics teachers.

Please note that graduates of teacher education programs are recommended by the University for Quebec certification to the Quebec Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS). For more information about teacher certification in Quebec, please refer to the Faculty of Education section under "Overview of Faculty Programs", "Undergraduate Education Programs", and "Quebec Teacher Certification".

Freshman Program

Students normally complete 30 credits in their Freshman (U0) year.

The Freshman year is the time to take introductory-level courses in Mathematics, as well as to explore areas that are not normally taken as teachable subject areas within B.Ed. programs (e.g., Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, etc.). Students should also investigate the possibility of taking one of the First Year Seminar courses offered by the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Science.

Students in the Secondary Mathematics program must complete three Math prerequisite courses in their Freshman year, MATH 133, MATH 140, and MATH 141.

In addition, students select courses from the recommended list below or other courses in consultation with the Program Adviser. The French Second Language (FRSL) courses suggested require a placement test to determine the appropriate course level.

They are expected to have completed the prerequisite courses MATH 133, MATH 140, and MATH 141 or their equivalents. Freshman students will take them as part of their Freshman program.

Students entering from CEGEP should only choose this program if they have a strong background in their CEGEP Mathematics courses. The 100-level prerequisite courses (MATH 133, MATH 140, and MATH 141) are considered CEGEP level and only students entering a five-year program (out-of-province and directly from high school) are eligible to take them. Students entering with Advanced Standing without having completed these prerequisites will be required to make up any deficiencies in these courses over and above the degree requirements.

Option 1
27 credits from the list of "Required Mathematics Courses" and
27 credits from the list of "Complementary Mathematics Courses"

Or

Option 2:
27 credits from the list of "Required Mathematics Courses" and
9 credits from the list of "Complementary Mathematics Courses"
And
18 credits of designated courses in another "teachable" subject area (English, Social Sciences, or Science and Technology - see these Secondary Education programs for courses)
Students must also take:
3 credits of Secondary Teaching Methods for the teachable subject area
(Note: This additional Methods course counts as a 3-credit elective in the program.)

Students in the English Secondary Profile who select Mathematics as their other "teachable subject area" take:
18 credits from the list of "Mathematics Courses for Other Secondary Subject Areas"
And
3 credits of "Secondary Teaching Methods - Mathematics"
(Note: This additional Methods course counts as a 3-credit elective in the program.)
