TEACHMATH at Berkeley TEACHMATH is a program designed to recruit math majors at Berkeley for a teaching career in high school or junior high. Its purpose is to help alleviate the critical shortage of mathematically knowledgeable teachers in the schools by encouraging more of our majors to go into the teaching profession. It is a two-year program that leads math majors to a single- subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics and offers a financial incentive at the same time. TEACHMATH is sponsored jointly by the Mathematics Department and the Graduate School of Education. Math majors who are accepted into the program will enroll in a suggested course of study in their senior year which includes courses in the Graduate School of Education and participation in supervised teaching in school classrooms. Afer their successful completion of the AB degree, they continue with the suggested course of study as graduate students in the School of Education, but will also be required to take two math corses courses for the year. They will be paid a stipend of $2000 for the first (their senior) year, and $4500 for the second. [Note that the normal program in the Graduate School of Education leading to a single subject teaching credential (as well as an MA) requires two years of graduate study.] There is significant interest on the part of the Oakland School district in placing TEACHMATH students within the district both during and after their supervised teaching period. It is expected that most succesful TEACHMATH graduates will be offered mathematics teaching positions at one of the many large high schools in the Bay Area. Students interested in this program should apply no later than February 28, 1998. For more information, please contact Professor H.
