## Middle School Math Teacher

**Middle school** is the first level at which special certification for a math teacher is required.

The teacher must pass a test and take training on middle school math topics like early algebra, statistics and things like median, mean and mode.

Passing this test allows the teacher to teach in this environment and to teach students in grades 6 through 8.

Prior to these grades, a regular school teacher can teach the students what they need to know in math.
