The Single Subject Credential in Foundational-Level Mathematics (FLM) authorizes the holder to teach the following content areas in grades 12 and below: general mathematics, all levels of algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and consumer mathematics. Click here for more information.
Subject matter competency for the FLM credential can be demonstrated by passing the first two CSET: Mathematics subtests (110 and 111; http://www.cset.nesinc.com/CS_testguide_Mathopener.asp) or by completing a CTC-approved subject matter preparation program. A presentation at the 2011 CMC-North conference chaired by Carol Fry Bohlin (California State University, Fresno) and Eric Hsu (San Francisco State University) highlighted the first three CSU programs to receive CTC approval. Results of a survey of CAMTE members regarding the FLM credential (http://tinyurl.com/SurveyFLM) were also presented. CAMTE's concerns with the FLM credential were later presented at the 6 December 2012 CTC meeting (click here for the agenda item).
