The requirements listed below for the minor in Mathematics Education apply to students who complete the minor before the fall semester 2014. Students who anticipate completing the minor after summer 2014 should consult their advisers.
Provided that MATH 416 is not chosen as an elective, this option meets the minimal mathematics requirement for an endorsement to teach mathematics in grades 9-12 in Illinois. Provided that neither MATH 360 nor MATH 416 is chosen as an elective, and provided that the student also completes MATH 410, this option meets the minimal mathematics requirement for an endorsement to teach mathematics in grades 6-8 in Illinois. The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) requires that students must have passed all the MATH and STAT courses applicable to their minor in Mathematics Education with a grade of C or better. Students should contact the department for information about alternative ways of obtaining an endorsement which do not necessarily involve a minor.
Six or more semester hours in the minor must be taken at NIU.
