Hey, we did the same thing here at University of Colorado at Denver!
What a small world. (Ho, ho.)

This is a fairly easy way to address the need for teachers to take
Graduate Credit for recertification. And it helps that I have an
appointment in both math and education.


Am I missing something? Why can't such a course be graduate credit in Math
Ed? Is it a bureaucratic nightmare to do that?
