Math Education (DTA/MRP) (Plan Code: METMEAS)

Academic Plans, known as programs, include an overview description and a summary of program requirements. You can search the online catalog via the Academic Plan links on the right for a desired program or a specific course information. 

This pathway is applicable to students preparing to enter a secondary (that is, high school) mathematics teaching degree or certification program at universities in Washington. Students need to make early contact with their potential transfer institutions regarding the specific course choices in each area of the agreement where options are listed. Students also need to check with their potential transfer institutions regarding the requirement for overall minimum GPA, a higher GPA in a selected subset of courses, or a specific minimum grade in one or more courses such as math or English.

Though this degree does not require such, Clark College students should know that the standard Clark AA degree path has these differences from the MRP defined below:

  1. Clark requires 3 credits of Health-Physical Education coursework, and
  2. As of Fall 2011, Clark requires a course in Oral Communication, and
  3. Clark's Social Science distribution requirement stipulates that students take courses from at least three different departments.

Students must also meet the residency requirements as established by Clark. While Clark College has approved offering the degree below, Clark students should keep these requirements in mind should their transfer pathways change.

Students are responsible for researching and preparing for specific major requirements of baccalaureate institutions as early as possible prior to transferring.

Program Outcomes

Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
  • Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
  • Apply a method of scientific inquiry, valid to the natural sciences, to evaluate claims about the natural world. (GE)
  • Evaluate claims about the natural world using scientific methodology. (GE)
  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
  • Analyze and interpret quantitative information presented verbally, graphically, numerically, and/or symbolically. (GE)
  • Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
  • Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills. (GE)
