***Effective April 30, 2008, admission to the Five-Year BSc Honors**

Mathematical Sciences and Bachelor in Education program is discontinued. Students currently enroled in the program prior to May 1, 2008 will be permitted to continue with the understanding that they must complete the requirements prior to September 1, 2011, and, that effective October 2011, the program be withdrawn and all registrations discontinued.

**Concurrent Degree Program**

This program is designed to prepare students to teach at the intermediate-senior level (grades 7-12) only. Entry into this program begins after completion of first year and may be limited. The program may be cancelled in a given year if enrolment targets are not met. Students who wish to transfer into this program after completion of second year of a different program must consult with the Chair of the Preservice Program in the Faculty of Education and a representative for the program from the Faculty of Science. See the website for this program to find the name of the current representative.

Students wishing to enrol in this program must choose sufficient courses in a second subject which would qualify as their "second teachable" subject. The minimum number of such courses is usually three; to find out exactly how many courses are necessary in that subject, please contact the Admissions Coordinator in the Pre-Service Office in the Faculty of Education or consult the website of the Faculty of Education.

**Admission Requirements **

A complete first year program, with an average of at least 70%, in which 3.0 courses must be designated as principal courses, including:

(Calculus 1000A/B or 1100A/B) and (Calculus 1501A/B (or Calculus 1301A/B with a minimum mark of 85%)), Linear Algebra 1600A/B, and Statistical Sciences 1023A/B. At least a 0.5 course in a second teachable subject is required; a 1.0 course in a second teachable subject is strongly recommended.

(**Note:** Either Physics or Computer Science is recommended as an

appropriate second teachable subject). Computer Science 1025A/B or 1026A/B, plus Computer Science 1027A/B are strongly recommended.

One course from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities or Social Science is also required. (English 1020E or Sociology 1020 is recommended.)

**Note: **A minimum of three full course equivalents in a second teachable subject must be completed before the beginning of fourth year.

**Second and Third Years **
The following must be completed during the second and third years and

will be considered **Principal Courses** in the year in which they are

taken:

The following must be completed during the second and third years and

will be considered **Subsidiary Courses** in the year in which they are

taken:

**1.0 course** in the Second Teachable subject.

**1.0 senior essay course** (

Education 2200E is strongly recommended).

**0.5 course** option.

**1.0 course** Educ 5502B: Practicum (concurrent) and Educ 5503B: Practicum (concurrent), each consisting of at least thirteen days (prerequisites for Educ 5504B in Fifth Year).

**Fourth Year**

**Principal Courses **

**1.0 course** in Mathematical Sciences chosen from Sets 1and 2, listed below*.

**4.0 courses** equivalents from the Faculty of Education, which include Teaching and Learning Theory of the Second Teachable subject, Foundations of Education, Educating Exceptional Children, and additional electives.

**Note:** Students intending to teach in Roman Catholic schools should

include the Religious Education elective.

**Fifth Year First Term**

**Principal Courses **
**1.5 courses** in Mathematical Sciences chosen from Sets 1 and 2, listed below*.

**Subsidiary Courses **
**1.0 course** in Mathematical Sciences chosen from Sets 1 and 2, listed below*.

**Fifth Year Second Term**

**Principal Courses **

Educ 5504B: Practicum (concurrent), which is a formal discussion of the activities and events of Educ 5502B, Educ 5503B, and Transition to Professional Practice, including analysis of teaching experiences and critical reflection on the work of teachers in schools. (0.5 credit).

Educ 5505B: Practicum (concurrent), which is a third practicum experience in which prospective mathematics teachers are placed in secondary school classrooms for a four month period and assume major teaching responsibilities. Students work under the guidance of an experienced mathematics teacher, and a teacher experienced in another subject area relevant to each student's program. (2.0 credits).

* All nine of the unspecified half courses in the Mathematical Sciences

required in the third, fourth, and fifth years of this program must be

chosen from Sets 1 and 2, listed below. At least two must be chosen from each of the Sets 1 and 2.

**Note:** Prerequisites for these courses are not necessarily met through

the prescribed program courses. Students must plan ahead in selecting

the appropriate prerequisites for the courses they wish to take from

these Sets.
