Mathematics Education K-8
Education Graduate certificates provide candidates with eligibility endorsements to an Alaska teaching certificate. All course work must be completed within a seven-year period immediately preceding the date the graduate certificate is granted. Graduate certificates are granted by the University of Alaska Southeast; UAS provides the institutional recommendation to the student to submit to the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development for endorsement.
The Mathematics Education (K-8) Certificate is a culturally responsive program designed to provide K-8 teachers with a deeper understanding of mathematical content and pedagogy. The courses will emphasize non-traditional, hands-on methods and approaches providing both rigor and pedagogy. Topics addressed include: problem solving; numeration and operations; algebra and functions; geometry and measurement; data analysis; statistics and probability; and calculus and trigonometry. ED S608 and ED S614 are offered on Juneau campus during summer session. Remaining courses in the program may be offered by e-Learning. It is expected that those enrolled in the program will complete it in 18–24 months
