Program Overview


Holders of a Single or Multiple Subject Teaching Credential issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) may add a Subject Matter Authorization in Introductory Mathematics. Introductory subjects authorize the holder to teach the subject matter content typically included in curriculum guidelines and textbooks approved for study in grades 9 and below. A teacher with an introductory authorization can teach a class in which the curriculum is for grades 9 and below (but the students in the class may be in grades 10-12).
