The City College offers several programs that prepare graduates to teach mathematics in New York State's middle and secondary schools. The Mathematics Education Program supports undergraduate and graduate students, who are current or prospective teachers, to skillfully enact the New York State Mathematics curriculum in grades 5 – 12.
Mathematics education students complete both mathematics and mathematics pedagogy linked courses. They learn to apply a variety of research-based teaching strategies preparing them to meet the diverse learning needs of students in the New York City schools and to help their students meet current New York State learning standards for mathematics.
The appropriate use of technology is encouraged throughout the program. Blackboard, a web-based instructional support system is available for all classes. Students may complete additional coursework in the use of graphing calculators and computer technology -- including Geometer's Sketchpad, Fathom, Excel, and other multimedia teaching tools.
