Faculty and Curriculum

Get a leg up on recent changes in math curriculum and assessment without taking a break from your teaching career.

Our coursework prepares you to more effectively help your students meet changing and challenging new math standards and expectations. To earn your endorsement, you will take three courses covering topics including:

  • The main content areas of K-5 math (numbers and operations, geometry and measurement, algebra, and statistics)
  • Learning theory
  • Methods of instruction
  • The effective use of technology and manipulatives

Learn not only from our faculty—all of whom have recent classroom experience—but also your fellow students. You will progress through your coursework and in-person meetings together, allowing you to support and learn from each other.

A combination of in-person Saturday sessions and online sessions throughout the semester enable you to share and discuss ideas as well as develop professional relationships that can enhance the remainder of your career.

You will add a K-5 mathematics endorsement to your Georgia teaching certificate.
