Mathematics Education M.A.

Promotes and supports teacher-leaders to be knowledgeable both in mathematics content and in the use of pedagogical practices that enable all students to learn mathematics.

The mathematics courses required for this program will also satisfy the requirements for a supplementary authorization to teach mathematics at the middle school level. Students from the two departments (Elementary Education and Secondary Education) take coursework together. Courses are cross-listed (EED/SED) with students enrolling under the respective level. Students will work together to:

  • Increase their knowledge of mathematics and pedagogical knowledge
  • Examine current equity issues in mathematics
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Design classroom research to answer relevant questions about students’ mathematical learning
