CSET Waiver Programs for Math Teachers (Full & Foundational):
To become a math teacher, you need a degree (with subject matter competency as required for teachers) and a teaching credential. To show subject matter competency, you can either pass the CSET, or complete a degree program that has the CSET waiver embedded in it. Follow the link for descriptions of the programs and the lists of courses for Math CSET Waiver. If you graduated in option I or II, you can complete the missing courses from the waiver you want and qualify for a CSET waiver. Note that option III and option IV graduates automatically qualify for the Full CSET waiver. However, all waiver seekers (options IIV) must contact Dr. Raychaudhuri via email after they complete the waiver courses, to have their waiver evaluation sent to Charter College of Education.You do not need to pay any fee for a waiver evaluation, if you are admitted in the credential program on campus.

Minor in Math
Catalog description of the Minor in Math
The following courses are preapproved upper division electives for the Minor in Math.
MATH 3200, MATH 3450, MATH 4010, MATH 4021, MATH 4030, MATH 4100, MATH 4200, MATH 4300, MATH 4460, MATH 4540, MATH 4550, MATH 4560, MATH 4570, MATH 4650, MATH 4660, MATH 4670, MATH 4680, MATH 4690, MATH 4700, MATH 4710, MATH 4720, MATH 4740, MATH 4750, MATH 4800, MATH 4840, MATH 4990
Upper Division Electives Advising: To receive a Math Minor, you are required to take MATH 2110, MATH 2120, and MATH 2130. In addition, you must take a fourth lower division course that is either MATH 2150, MATH 2450, or MATH 2550. Here are the possible upper division courses that you can take based on what course you took to fulfill the fourth lower division course in the minor.
 If you took MATH 2150, then the following upper division courses are possible to take: MATH 3200, MATH 4021, MATH 4030, MATH 4740, MATH 4750 (4740 is a prereq).
 If you took MATH 2550, then the following upper division courses are possible to take: MATH 3200, MATH 4100, MATH 4700 (if you have taken a programming course), MATH 4710 (4700 is a prereq), MATH 4720, MATH 4740, MATH 4750 (4740 is a prereq).
 If you took both MATH 2150 and MATH 2550, then the following upper division courses are possible to take: Any of the above courses listed in the above two options, and also MATH 4800.
 If you took MATH 2450, then the following upper division courses are possible to take: In this case we recommend that you take MATH 3450. After that you have many possibilities, such as MATH 4200, MATH 4300, MATH 4460, MATH 4550, MATH 4560 (prereq is 4550), MATH 4650 (prereq is 4660), MATH 4680, MATH 4840, MATH 4690.
