The fast track mathematics program is for new teachers with an academic background in mathematics who need courses in pedagogy and an initial teaching license. Courses are scheduled in a streamlined format in late afternoons, evening and summers. Support seminars are offered. Participants may complete the program in a year and a summer, depending on content background. Participants lacking content required by state and/or national standards will need to complete additional coursework. Program completion requires the preparation of a portfolio documenting learning and performance.
