## Curriculum & Requirements

**Mathematics, Middle-Level Mathematics Endorsement Certificate, Graduate**

Through completion of the required courses in this certificate program, teachers currently certified in the state of Washington will earn a middle-level (4th through 9th grades) mathematics teaching endorsement. The MA in teaching K–9 mathematics program, with endorsement-specific electives completed, also meets the middle-level endorsement requirements, and students in the degree program need not enroll separately in this certificate program. The certificate program is for students seeking the endorsement only, without the master’s degree, and differs from the undergraduate add-on middle level endorsement program in that the graduate courses will be populated by certified teachers who may have had teaching experience that they will bring to bear. The certificate program courses will also be offered in the late afternoons and summer quarters, whereas the courses in the undergraduate program are primarily offered during the day in the regular academic year.

Completion of this program–by a currently certified teacher with one or more Washington State Teaching Endorsements–will satisfy the Washington state requirements for a middle level mathematics teaching endorsement (grade levels 4–9).

**General Admission Requirements for the Middle Level Mathematics Add-On Endorsement**

- a Washington State Teaching Certificate;
- demonstration of entry-level competency on an inventory of content knowledge for teaching mathematics administered in the Mathematics Department.

Note: for students who have not previously completed or equivalent, or , the program will total 40 credits.
