Middle Level Mathematics Education

Middle Level Math Program Curriculum

The KU Middle Level Mathematics teacher education program curriculum is built on the belief that it is critical for KU students to not only gain a broad-based teacher education preparation, but to supplement that education with hands-on practical experience in the field. This powerful combination allows our students to excel in any classroom environment. Freshmen and transfer students will complete the KU Core Curriculum for general education requirements. Review the Academic Catalog or consult the new program detail sheet (pdf) for more comprehensive information.
