Middle and High School EducationCourses & Requirements for MAT Mathematics StudentsMiddle School Mathematics
At the time of application for the MAT middle school Mathematics program, a prospective student should have completed at least two semesters of Calculus and one more advanced course. Letters of recommendation from former Mathematics Professors are strongly encouraged. High School Mathematics
Many students find Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis too difficult after just one semester of Linear Algebra. Often a course at an intermediate level (Discrete Mathematics, Number Theory, Geometry, or courses entitled "Transition to Advanced Mathematics" or "Introduction to Proof") can be a helpful stepping stone for more advanced Mathematics Courses. At the time of application for the MAT high school Mathematics program, a prospective student should have completed at least two semesters of Calculus, Linear Algebra, and at least one course at a more advanced level. Those students who did not major in Mathematics in their undergraduate education should consider student teaching placement options that will allow them to spend most of the Fall Semester at Tufts. Letters of recommendation from former Mathematics Professors are strongly encouraged. Course requirements in the sciences for students in the MAT Middle School General Science program Students in the MAT Middle School General Science program who take the following sequence of 3 courses:
Students who take only 2 of these courses will receive the equivalent of 1 course credit in the sciences and 1 course credit in education. Students who take only 1 of these courses will receive the equivalent of 1 course credit in education.
