Math Requirements

If You Already Have a Degree

If you wish to enter the Faculty of Education with a major in Mathematics Education, you must possess a recognized degree which includes a major in Mathematics or a closely related discipline. In addition, all other prerequisites for admission must be met. At the time of admission, the nature of the applicant's degree is examined, and a program is planned and approved by the Faculty of Education. If the approved degree contains the necessary components, including a completed teaching major, both certification and B. Ed. requirements may be met upon completion of 20 courses in Education.

*You may be required to make up deficiencies in your teachable school subject major if the total number of required courses is not complete, although acceptable, at the point of admission to the program. These courses will be over and above the 20 mandatory Education courses.

Combined Degrees -- B.Sc. / B.Ed.

Mathematics is the science of space, number and quantity. Mathematical research is about ideas. We are in an age of explosive growth in mathematical knowledge. As a Math major, you'll take courses in linear algebra, calculus, mathematical concepts, group and ring theory, statistics and computer science.

Students may meet the Mathematics Education major requirements by completing a major in Mathematics or the General Major in the Sciences (at least 7 courses in Math/Stats and 4 courses in each of two other disciplines in the Sciences) and one 'Science in Human Affairs' from the specified list.

Note: The Program Planning Guide may change slightly from year to year. Students will typically follow the program requirements in effect at the time of their most recent admission to the University of Lethbridge. Combined Degrees students are encouraged to contact the Faculty of Arts and Science, Advising, for additional information pertaining to the B.Sc. portion of the program.
