## Supplementary Authorization for Single or Multiple Subject Teaching Credential (30–33 units)

Holders of a Single Subject or Multiple Subject credential issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing may secure a supplementary authorization in Introductory Mathematics (on single subject credentials) or Mathematics (on multiple subject credentials) for teaching mathematics at any grade level through grade 9 by completing the following courses with a grade of C or higher in each course. Note that this supplementary authorization is not NCLB (No Child Left Behind) compliant, but that some school districts may hire candidates with a supplementary authorization on the condition that the candidate will work toward the Subject Matter Authorization in Introductory Mathematics (see below). For other requirements governing issuance of this authorization, consult the Charter College of Education.

## 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 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.
