* Concentration electives can be in Mathematics or another approved department. See an advisor from the College of Education for approval of education courses. Select at least two courses from the following for Math/ Concentration Electives: 92.410/510 Computers and Calculators in the Classroom, 92.413/513 Number Theory, 92.421/521 Abstract Algebra, 92.427/527 Geometry, or 92.435/535 History of Mathematical Sciences. No more than 60 Math credits can be counted towards the degree.

Note
This concentration does not give students certification to teach mathematics. The requirements for certification to teach vary from state to state. The licensure to teach mathematics usually involves three parts: a bachelors degree in mathematics or the equivalent, courses in education and state exams. Therefore, students considering a teaching career are strongly advised to see their departmental advisor and to contact the UML Graduate College of Education. They have information on the credentialing requirements for many states, and they also have information on the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL). The courses required in the Teacher Option prepare students to take and pass these exams.

** Electives may be chosen from any courses from the University. However, no more than 60 mathematics credits (beyond 92.120 and 92.123) can be counted toward graduation. All mathematics courses have prefix 92.

#The Analysis courses are to be chosen from a list of courses provided by the Coordinator.

Many 500-level mathematics courses are within the grasp of upper level undergraduate students. Refer to the day school schedule of classes for graduate course listings. Many graduate courses are offered in the late afternoon/early evening time frame.
