We offer valuable networking opportunities through our Math Club, Pi Lambda Theta—our Education Honors Society, and our Professional Teacher Candidate Organization.

"I really enjoyed Methods of Math. I was able to take the learning from my education classes and my math classes and put it into action. I loved how this class was shaped as more of a team effort with my classmates, professor, and cooperating teacher; rather than a bunch of individual assignments."

Kara Quinn on Methods of Teaching Secondary Math
