## Subject Matter Waiver Program for Single Subject Credential in Mathematics (85-86 units)

The Single Subject Matter Program listed below has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the Single Subject Credential in Mathematics. The coursework prepares candidates to teach high school mathematics including general mathematics, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, consumer mathematics, calculus and math analysis.

**Note: It is assumed that students entering this program have completed the equivalent of CSULA’s precalculus sequence (MATH 104A and MATH 104B). Competence in MATH 104A and MATH 104B can also be shown by passing the respective departmental exit exams.**

## Subject Matter Waiver Program for Foundational Level Credential in Mathematics (48-49 units)

The Foundational Level Subject Matter Program listed below has been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the Foundational Level Credential in Mathematics. The coursework prepares candidates to teach middle school mathematics and some high school mathematics including general mathematics, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and consumer mathematics.

## Subject Matter Authorization in Introductory Mathematics for Single or Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (48 units)

Holders of a Single or Multiple Subject Teaching Credential issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) may add a Subject Matter Authorization in Introductory Mathematics. This allows the holder of the Subject Matter Authorization to teach mathematics curriculum usually taught in grades 9 and below (even though the students may be in grades K-12).

To obtain a Subject Matter Authorization in Introductory Mathematics (which satisfies the federal “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) regulation), a total of 48 quarter units (=32 semester units) of course work applicable toward a bachelor’s degree must be completed with a grade of C or better. A minimum of 4 quarter units of course work must be completed in each of the following core areas: Algebra; Advanced Algebra; Geometry; Probability or Statistics; and Development of the Real Number System or Introduction to Mathematics.

The core courses in the program below have been designed for students who have not taken any college level mathematics course. Students placing into a mathematics course at a level beyond MATH 102 or MATH 104A should consult with the credential adviser in mathematics to select a different set of core courses. Additional information is available by downloading the CCTC guide for subject matter authorization (www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/manualshandbooks/subjectmatter-auth.pdf) or through the credential adviser for mathematics. For other requirements governing issuance of this authorization, consult the Charter College of Education.
