Math Endorsement

The SEDC Regional Service Center working with the districts and charter schools in the region will provide a math endorsement professional development opportunity for elementary school teachers. To ensure that qualifying teachers have an opportunity to participate, the eREACH regional interactive video conference (IVC) system will be used to deliver the courses. The instructors for each of the six required math endorsement courses will be selected from a regional pool of highly qualified teachers.


If you have any questions about this program, please email Selene Corbridge or call her at (435) 586-2865


List of classes:

  1. Mathematics for Elementary Teachers K-8: EDEL5500 Numbers and Operations (3 credits)
  2. Mathematics for Elementary Teachers K-8: EDEL5510 Rational Numbers and Proportional Reasoning (3 credits) - Course starts June 5, Course Registration Form
  3. Mathematics for Elementary Teachers K-8: EDEL5520 Algebraic Reasoning (3 credits)
  4. Mathematics for Elementary Teachers K-8: EDEL5530 Geometry and Measurement (3 credits)
  5. Mathematics for Elementary Teachers K-8: EDEL5540 Data Analysis and Problem Solving (3 credits)
  6. Mathematics for Elementary Teachers K-8: EDEL5550 Assessment and Intervention (3 credits)


Project objective and scope:
The specific objective and scope of the project is to have certified elementary school teachers complete their math endorsement. The credentials will improve their classroom pedagogy and math instruction helping improve student achievement in mathematics as shown by state-level assessments.


The approach:

The first day of the first class will be January 9, 2017 and will run through the middle of May (15 weeks), holding classes via IVC once a week on Monday from 3:30-6:15pm.

It is required that each class be between 15-20 students. If we get less than 15 teachers registered in a class, we will not offer it. If there are more than 30 teachers requesting, the regional math committee and the SEDC board will determine priority.

Participating teachers will need to either purchase the Elementary and Middle School Mathematics book by John Van De Walle, or “borrow” a copy from their district office.
Each district and charter will be required to provide their participating teachers the required hands on manipulative that are used in each class.


Credit will be provided through UVU at $15 per class ($5.00 per credit hour).  Also, a one-time $35.00 UVU registration fee will be required for the first class. All credits will go towards the math endorsement.


The required six classes will be offered and completed with the following timeline:

  • Start date for the first class is January 2017 and will go to the middle of May
  • Start date for the second class is June 2017 and will be completed in a three week period
  • Start date for the third class is September 2017 and will go to the middle of December
  • Start date for the fourth class is January 2018 and will be completed the middle of May
  • Start date for the fifth class is June 2018 and will be completed in a three week period
  • Start date for the sixth class is September 2018 and will go to the middle of December


SEDC will again offer the UVU - EDEL 5500-5550 Math Endorsement series to the Southwest Region. We are ready to start registration for the Summer 2017 Math Endorsement Class.

The next course for Elementary (K-8th Grade) Mathematics Teachers will be EDEL 55100: Rational Numbers and Proportional Reasoning. This class will begin Monday, June 5 and will conclude June 23 (only a 3-week course). Teachers will interact with each other and the instructor through the state Interactive Video Conferencing (IVC) system. The class will meet each Monday-Thursday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm for two weeks, 5 hours a day in class, followed by a week out of class working on assignments based in Canvas. 

Information for UVU Admittance and UVU Registration will be emailed to you when you register with SEDC.

Please let your teachers know about this new endorsement opportunity!

These classes we offered over IVC (Interactive Video Conferencing) to rural areas of the region starting in January 2014 and ending December 2015. A special thanks to our instructors, Matt Basset, Jeff Harrah, and Jet Warr and the Math Endorsement Committee members who have made this possible.

Teachers completing the Endorsement:

  • Eva Durfey
  • LaNae Cloud
  • Audrey Tullis
