Math Focus

  • Statistics
  • Precalculus
  • Calculus 1

Note:  If pressed for time, replace core science Phsc110 at IVC with Chem308 at SDSU-IV later.

  • Transitions to higher math 302
  • Math for the middle grades 413
  • One course from Math History 303
  • Math Modeling 336
  • Applied Probability Stat550
  • Or another upper division math elective selected with approval from Dr. Verzi. Be aware that SDSU-IV math courses are only available once every two years, so plan ahead.

Choosing the math focus will allow you to add subject matter authorization in mathematics to your multiple subject teaching credential, to include middle school mathematics.

 

 

 

Science Focus

  • Physical science 110
  • Chemistry100 Introduction
  • Geol110 Earth Science
  • Biol100 Introduction

Note:  If pressed for time, replace core science Phsc110 at IVC with Chem308 at SDSU-IV later.

  • Geol303 Disasters
  • Biol324 Life in the Sea
  • Geol412 Processes in Earth Science and lab (beginning 2014-15) and Field ExperienceTE362A (1 un).

 

 

 

 

Foundational Science Credential Path

  • Chem100 Introduction
  • Chem200 Organic
  • Biol100 Intro
  • Biol120 Zoology
  • Geol110 Earth Science
  • Phys180A-182A
  • Geol303 Disasters
  • Geol412 Processes in Earth Science and lab (beginning 2014-15)
  • Phys412 Processes and lab
  • Chem 308 Unifying Science
  • Field ExperienceTE362A (1 un).

Choosing this program allows you to bypass the multiple subject CSET exams and credential program.  Earning good grades in this program serves as a waiver for CSET science exams, and permits you to enter a single-subject foundational science credential program.
