We encourage students to complete Math 73SL and Math 74SL in their freshmen and sophomore years to learn about current issues, standards and research in K-12 mathematics instruction. In addition, in these courses students engage in fieldwork which counts towards the 600 hours required for a CA teaching credential.

In addition to the courses within the Math Department and UCLA Teacher Education Program, you will need to complete additional requirements set by California. See California Teaching Credential for specific tests and waivers you need to apply for throughout your years at UCLA.
