Middle Grades Mathematics Education back to programs

Show middle schoolers what math can do.

Excellent mathematicians prepared to engage in classroom settings are in high demand. We will equip you with not only the fundamental knowledge of problem-solving and logic, but also with the ability to translate that knowledge into effective lessons for your students.


Major requirements total 69 hours. This includes 44 hours of required Professional Education courses and 25 hours of Mathematics courses. You’ll take interesting courses such as:

  • Professional Skills for Teachers
  • Reading and Writing Across the Curriculum
  • Calculus and Analytic Geometry


See Required Courses




Knowledge of mathematical theorems, critical problem-solving, and classroom management is useless without the opportunity to put it into action. During your time here at Trinity, you will have the chance to engage in classroom observation, lesson planning, and student teaching at local middle schools.
