Preparing future math educators.
OKWU’s Bachelor of Science in Math Education prepares students for certification in Math, for teaching grades P-12. Our courses allow our students to develop their understanding of the mathematical view of the world. OKWU students demonstrate their expertise in the creation of lessons, assessments, and interactions with middle school and high school students.
Graduates of OKWU’s Math Education program are teachers, administrators, managers, technicians, and leaders in education all over the world, fulfilling the calling of God on their lives. Many are in classrooms; others are in leadership positions, seeking to help others grow and change.
