Graduate Certificate

Middle Grades Digitally-Enhanced Mathematics Education

Students learning with technologyThis graduate certificate program provides teachers with the mathematical, pedagogical, and technological foundation required to prepare middle school students for high school mathematics.

The curricular focus includes both teaching conceptually-based instructional sequences, as well as developing conceptually-based instructional strategies for use in the middle school mathematics classroom. As a result, each course in the certificate contains a school-embedded technology project to provide documentation of student learning in each of the big ideas identified by Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in mathematics.

In addition, 4 of the 5 courses from this graduate certificate program can be used by teachers to continue their education and obtain a Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) master’s degree.
