Endorsement Program Requirements
The professional core courses, competencies, and experiences for the Mathematics Coach Endorsement program are designed to address the specific set of issues, knowledge, and competencies that are relevant to coaching, teaching, and learning. The program prepares mathematics coaches who will be able to support teachers’ efforts to help students become competent and confident in mathematics.
The Mathematics Coach Endorsement program consists of four courses (12 credits) that focus on the mathematical content, pedagogical content knowledge, and current research related to the academic standards.
