RESOLVED: That the Teaching Credential programs of the CSU embrace this report and ensure that students earning a California Single-Subject Credential in mathematics be properly prepared; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the ASCSU send copies of this resolution to the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, the California Superintendent of Schools, the Deans of the Colleges of Education in the CSU, the Chancellor of the Community Colleges of California and the Superintendents of the California School Districts.

RATIONALE: The recommendations in this report will facilitate the CSU’s desire to increase graduation rates and to decrease remediation classes.  The clarity of the expectations presented will allow California high school mathematics departments to put into place curriculum consistent with CSU expectations.
