###### Degrees Offered

Graduate Certificate, Master of Arts for Teachers

###### Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics provides graduate-level instruction in mathematics to students interested in obtaining advanced skills and knowledge in this area.

These may include instructors of finite mathematics, calculus and other introductory college-level mathematics courses. The certificate curriculum provides the knowledge and expertise needed to integrate new mathematical concepts and approaches into teaching.

**Participating Campuses**

IU East, IU Kokomo, IU Northwest, IU South Bend, and IU Southeast

**Admissions**

To be accepted to this program, you must have:

- A bachelor's degree in mathematics, a bachelor's degree in education with a mathematics concentration or outside area, or two years secondary teaching experience in dual-credit mathematics
- A 3.0 GPA or above on a 4.0 scale

**Requirements**

To earn the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics, you must complete 18 credit hours. Requirements are broken down as follows:

- Mathematics core courses (9 credit hours)
- Mathematics elective courses (9 credit hours)

You choose courses from the following areas of study: algebra, analysis, typology and geometry, differential equations and applications, and probability and statistics.*Algebra. *You explore core applications of algebra, including group theory, ring theory, field theory, commutative and noncommutative algebra, number theory, and more.*Analysis. *You cover topics in analysis application, including real analysis, complex analysis, Fourier analysis, and more.*Topology and Geometry.* You study essential concepts of topology and geometry, including Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry, point set topology, differential topology, differential geometry, and more.*Differential Equations and Applications.* You examine differential equations and applications, including numerical methods, mathematics of finance, graph theory, mathematical physics, and more.*Probability and Statistics.* You cover graduate-level knowledge of key concepts in probability and statistics.

**Courses**

*Core Courses*ALL core courses are listed here. You will select from among these courses to fulfill degree requirements:

###### Master of Arts for Teachers

The IU Online Master of Arts for Teachers in Mathematics combines coursework in education and mathematics to prepare you to be a dual-credit instructor at the high school and community college levels.

The educational component of the program teaches you how to apply the science and art of teaching to college-level instruction. Coursework covers instruction and curriculum, assessment, diversity and inclusive teaching, and research.

As a student in the mathematics component of the program, you develop advanced knowledge in three of the following categories: algebra, analysis applications, topology and geometry, differential equations and applications, and probability and statistics. You learn to analyze and interpret mathematical data for real-world applications, to think and problem-solve mathematically, and to apply the best methods for teaching these lessons to an undergraduate audience.

Specific areas of focus include:

- Algebra
- Analysis
- Topology and geometry
- Differential equations and applications
- Probability and statistics

**Participating Campuses**
