Become a Valuable Asset to Your School’s Mathematics Program
It takes much more than general content knowledge or basic education courses to become a master teacher. Your Master in Mathematics Teaching Certificate from University of Houston-Clear Lake's College of Education is designed to model more effective mathematics instruction, equip teacher to challenge diverse learners, inspire creative problem solving, and integrate technology into instruction. You’ll also gain the tools you need to take a leadership role in your school or district, and become a mathematics mentor to other teacher or students.
Achieve Your Master Mathematics Certification
A Master Teacher certificate added to an existing Texas teaching certificate designates
the educator as having mastery of a particular subject area. It is the intent that
the master teacher will serve as a resource to fellow teachers. The Master Mathematics
Teacher certificate program at UHCL provides 22 credit hours of graduate courses,
which is equivalent to 288 hours of continuing education units. Successful completion
of coursework related to the appropriate grade level will prepare students to pass
the corresponding Master Mathematics Teacher state assessment, serve in a mentoring
role, and serve as a resource for other teachers.
