NYSED Content Areas: Statistics, Quantitative Analysis, Applied Mathematics
According to NYSED, acceptable studies for certification (grades 7-12) include courses offered by a mathematics department that are considered core requirements toward a degree in mathematics. For example, courses in mathematical reasoning, quantitative methods, number theory and concepts, algebra, analytic geometry, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, data analysis, probability, and discrete mathematics are acceptable. NYSED does not accept computer science, accounting, finance and other courses that apply mathematics to solve problems that are not purely mathematical.
Stony Brook University has determined that the courses on the list below meet the NYSED guidelines for professional license in this certification content area. Some multi-disciplinary courses will require that you complete and submit the NYSED Course Verification Form to SPD. For those courses, we have provided a link to the form, which should be submitted only upon satisfactory completion of the course. Courses with departmental subject codes (e.g., AMS, MAT) are valid for the content area as defined by the academic department designator and do not require a form.
You may request review of any course that is not on this list or does not have departmental subject code.

of Student Responsibility
Students themselves—whether new, returning, or continuing—are responsible for reviewing, understanding, and adhering to their degree and/or certificate program requirements. (SPD’s Non-matriculating [non-degree] Graduate Students [GSP] are responsible for adhering to the guidelines related to non-matriculated status.) All SPD students are responsible for reviewing, understanding, and complying with University and SPD regulations, policies, and procedures, as described in all official publications, the University website, and the SPD website, including, but not limited to, SPD’s online references, the SPD Bulletin and SPD Academic Calendar.
