Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Alphabetical List of Programs


The Math Education DTA/MRP degree is designed to meet the minimum general education requirements to prepare students for teacher certification in secondary math at Central Washington University (CWU), Eastern Washington (EWU), Western Washington University (WWU), and Washington State University (WSU). This agreement meets all the requirements of Washington’s Direct Transfer Agreement.

Math Education DTA/MRP graduates will:

  • explain the central concepts, foundation, theories, and intellectual frameworks of professional teaching
  • identify and practice interpersonal and cultural communication techniques in order to foster active learning, dialogue, collaboration, and positive interaction and relations with peers, school officials, agencies, parents, and learners
  • compare and describe a variety of instructional strategies and methods that address individual learners and learning styles
  • explain and apply specific math concepts from algebra through advanced calculus
  • demonstrate communication, critical thinking, cultural humility, information literacy, and teamwork skills
  • meet Humanities , Natural Science , Quantitative Reasoning , Social Science , and Written Communication  general education distribution area outcomes

Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.

Program Requirements

Recommended Course Sequence

The courses listed below are a suggested sequence; as long as prerequisites are met, courses may be taken in a different order.

Diversity and Social Justice Requirement

Within the degree requirements, students must complete a 3-5 credit course that meets the college’s Diversity and Social Justice (DSJ) requirement. DSJ courses are designated in the college schedule and are designed to meet other general education or technical requirements simultaneous to meeting the DSJ requirement (e.g., ENGL& 101 with the DSJ attribute meets both the ENGL& 101 requirement and the DSJ requirement).

Note: Not all sections of a course meet the DSJ requirement. Students should review the class information to ensure the class section includes “course attributes: meets diversity requirement.”

Visit the DSJ requirement webpage to view the current list of general education and technical courses that meet the requirement.

Students who have taken a DSJ class in a previous certificate or degree, do not have to take another DSJ class.

Total Program Credits: 90

View the Statewide Major Related Program (MRP) Agreement.
