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.
Note: Students entering this program from CEGEP or with Advanced Standing should have a strong background in their Mathematics courses. Students entering from CEGEP or with Advanced Standing without having completed two calculus courses and one linear algebra course (MATH 133, MATH 140, and MATH 141 or their equivalents) will be required to make up any deficiencies in these courses over and above the degree requirements.
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 courses in Education (including field experiences) and courses in the subject area of the teaching specialization. Students also take 6 credits of free electives. For all teacher education programs, course sequencing is highly structured. For this reason, the advising information in this eCalendar section must be used in conjunction with the summary companion document (Program Overview) found at http://www.mcgill.ca/dise/progs/secmath.
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 introductorylevel 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.
