Teaching of Digitally-Enhanced Middle Grades Mathematics Education Graduate Certificate

Department: Dean’s Office

The five-course sequence for this technology-enhanced certificate program comprises a middle-grades methods course, a course in content area reading, and three mathematics courses that incorporate the use of interactive, representational technology when teaching algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis. Together these courses are designed to provide teachers with the mathematical, pedagogical, and technological foundation required to prepare middle school students for high school mathematics. The curricular focus includes both teaching conceptually-based instructional sequences, as well as developing conceptually-based instructional strategies for use in the middle school mathematics classroom. As a result, each course in the Certificate will contain a school-embedded technology project to provide documentation of student learning in each of the big ideas identified by Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in mathematics.
