The mathematics education program provides candidates with exciting opportunities to develop their full potential as mathematics teachers. Candidates participate in course work that enables them to learn meaningful strategies for teaching mathematics while they strengthen their own content knowledge. Candidates also learn the importance of creating an equitable mathematics learning environment.
What will I learn?
The coursework incorporates field-based experiences and attention to use of technology in teaching mathematics. This preparation provides a conceptual knowledge basis for both prospective and inservice teachers to make decisions regarding middle and high school mathematics curricula, instructional strategies, and evaluation techniques required in today's schools, and to continue to develop their knowledge of mathematics and mathematics education.
How will I use my degree?
The goal of the Mathematics Education program is to prepare reflective and highly qualified middle school and high school teachers of mathematics. Since both mathematics and mathematics education are evolving disciplines and central to the preparation of mathematics teachers, a strong preparation in each is required.
