I'm nearing the end of highschool and am looking for a college/university for my undergraduate studies. I am planning to major in Mathematics with a concentraion in secondary education. I only have two schools on my list to consider/apply, they are EIU and UIC (because good teachers I know have attended these schools), however, I would like to expand the list so that I have a wider selection to choose from. Any suggestions for good undergraduate math education schools?

Yes, the location of the school doesn't matter to me.

MIT and the University of Waterloo are prestigious schools for math in North America.

Although it doesn't matter as much where you go for undergrad, I guess I'll just list the most prestigious/top math undergrads for you to keep in mind: Harvard, Berkeley, Princeton, MIT, U of Chicago, Caltech, Stanford, UCLA, Yale, etc.
EDIT: Also, note that you should probably go to a different university for graduate school if you intend to do that. This means that if you want to try out both a public + private university for a wider spectrum, try a public university undergrad and private grad. That's my plan anyways.

If you want a degree in math *education*, I would not be going to MIT, and probably not any of the highpowered schools listed. I would go to a liberal arts school that has a program in it.

Both UCLA and Berkeley have math teaching programs housed in the math department.
