as well as appropriate science courses. (Consult the appropriate JMU catalog or see the following link for more information on IDLS).
The courses in the IDLS mathematics core are designed to meet teacher preparation recommendation for elementary grade level from NCTM content standards, MAA recommendations, and recommendation of the CBMS Mathematical Education of Teachers document. Collectively, all of the mathematics courses in the Mathematics/Science concentration meet the additional content recommendations of these organizations for grades k-5 and 5-8.
For more information about these courses, see the Essential Mathematics for Middle School Teachers page.
These courses form a portion of a program leading to an Algebra I add-on endorsement.
