Hi there. I was hoping someone could help clear things up until I hear back from my credential analyst. I just received my prelim single subject teaching credential in chemistry in California. I've already taken the first two CSETs in math, so I inquired about getting some sort of authorization to be able to teach foundational level math. I was told two different things. 1) Simply submit an application to CTC for an Introductory Subject Matter Authorization in Math if I meet the coursework requirements. 2) I was told to take a methods class in math. Then what? Based on my research, I think this path would lead me to getting a prelim single subject teaching credential in foundational level math.? If I am correct about Option 2, does that mean I have to clear both credentials within 5 years? Wondering what is the benefit of having a credential in foundational math vs an introductory subject matter authorization in math. Thanks!
