I don't know if this is a good place to ask, but I'll try anyways

I'm in the middle of getting a math degree, with the probable goal of math Ed. I also want to leave a window open to data analysis. How do I know which math electives to take? I know that I am asking people who have no idea who I am :

but I'm trying to figure out where to begin. Does anyone have any idea as to what courses I might want to be looking in to? For example - does discreet math help me?

next tells what you need if you wnat to focus in math and maybe math grad school

Core for Concentration in Mathematics

next tells what you need for applied math (data analysis)

Core for Concentration in Applied Mathematics

this is a really great video on math classes, what they teach and what they're useful for

here you can see the math requirements at WGU for teaching math to middle school children
