Completing the program in mathematics, including passing all ISBE tests, “highly qualifies” you to teach honors and AP courses in Mathematics, as well as lower level courses in grades 912.
The Teacher Education Program (TEP) Handbook provides detailed information about the TEP program, admission requirements, field requirements, and state and university licensure requirements.
Professional Education / Secondary Education Major (10 units)
Take the courses below in the sequence listed. Refer to the IWU catalog for course prerequisites and restrictions on concurrent enrollment. The professional education courses listed below are used to compute your professional education grade point average for TEP and student teaching acceptance.

S 
Educ 225: Education and Social Justice (SI) (or fall semester sophomore year) 

Sophomore year 
F 
Educ 255: Child Study and Assessment (WI) 

S 
Educ 257: The Exceptional Child (U) (or fall junior year)  
Junior Year*

F 
Educ 257: The Exceptional Child (U) 

S 
Educ 362: Curriculum and Pedagogy in 612 Mathematics 

M 
Educ 365: Reading, Writing, and Communication in the Content Areas

F

Educ 490: Student Teaching Seminar Educ 494: Student Teaching: Mathematics 
15 week full time immersion in the field (continues May placement) 
S 
Educ 498: Educational Inquiry (WI) 

*If planning to travel abroad, do so prior to spring term of junior year, and plan enrollment in 225, 255, and 257 accordingly. Ninth semester graduates delay required 300 level professional education coursework to the senior year, and take Educ 498 prior to student teaching spring semester senior year. 
Mathematics Major Requirements (minimum 11 course units)
