Learn how to teach the fundamentals of mathematics.
At JBU, we know that your desire to help others learn and grow comes from God. In the mathematics education major, you'll revisit foundational mathematical concepts and learn to successfully teach at a secondary education level. With on-campus model classrooms and exposure to real classrooms starting in your very first semester, you will graduate well-prepared to teach in a public or private school classroom.
What to expect as a mathematics education student at JBU
Shadow veteran teachers
Students spend a lot of time in clinical-style education with mentor teachers. Through observing and teaching alongside these teachers, JBU students become confident in their capabilities in areas such as classroom management and lesson planning.
Gain competence and skill
From the very first semester, students get to have an in-classroom experience. JBU students get the chance to practice teaching for more time than most students in other mathematics education programs. This creates great confidence, trust and respect in the student's mentor teachers, as well as future employers.
JBU students can spend time studying in Lithuania, Guatemala, Honduras, Northern Ireland and various parts of the world. Not only does JBU equip students to be able to transfer their teaching license to go and teach other places, but gives them a chance to enhance their teaching education abroad before they even graduate
