# Course Requirements: Major with a Teaching Concentration

### Requirements for the Major with a Teaching Concentration

The teaching concentration is designed to increase the number and
quality of math teachers. It requires the completion of two relatively new
courses: Math 151 and 152. It also includes a modification to the
typical pure math major sequence.

Following are the required courses for the teaching concentration:

Statistics 20 Probability and Statistics

Mathematics 1A-1B Calculus

Mathematics 53 Multivariable Calculus

Mathematics 54 Linear Algebra & Differential Equations

Mathematics 55 Discrete Mathematics

Mathematics 104 Real Analysis

Mathematics 110 Linear Algebra

Mathematics 113 Abstract Algebra

Mathematics 151 Mathematics for the Secondary School Curriculum I

Mathematics 152 Mathematics for the Secondary School Curriculum II

Mathematics 160 History of Mathematics

Two additional upper division math classes. Math 115,123,124,125A,128A,130,135,136,170,185 are recommended.

*(We will accept Physics 89 in lieu of Math 54 for students with a double major in Physics, provided that the grade is at least a C. We will accept EECS 16A plus EECS 16B in lieu of Math 54 for students with a double major in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, provided that both grades are at least a C. We will accept Computer Science 70 in lieu of Mathematics 55 for students with a double major in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, provided that the grade is at least a C.)*

Following is a brief description of the Mathematics 151-152 series:

**Mathematics 151** treats fractions, rational numbers, basic number
theory and the Euclidean algorithm, rigid motions, dilations, geometry
of similar triangles, and linear equations and their graphs.

**Mathematics 152** treats linear inequalities and their graphs,
simultaneous linear equations, functions (quadratic, polynomial,
rational, exponential, and logarithmic), basic Euclidean geometry, and
discussion of axiomatization.
