*Students counted are those who completed a secondary teacher education program and:
- who majored in physics, astronomy/astrophysics, or physics education (as reported for Title II by the institution). In the first chart above, these are represented by the bar labeled "Majored in physics et al." Note that according to the American Institute for Physics, for every 100 physics teachers with a major in physics or physics education, another 28 had a minor.
- who completed a program designed to meet state requirements for certification to teach physics (as reported for Title II by the institution). In the first chart above, these are represented by the bar labeled "Completed program in physics education."
- who were certified by the state of Illinois to teach secondary physics (as reported for Title II by the state). In the first chart above, these are represented by the bar labeled "Certified to teach physics."
Note that the same students may be counted by more than one method. Unless otherwise noted, all charts on this page use the first method for counting physics teachers prepared. See the technical information page for more information.
