Curriculum

M.S. in Mathematics Teaching and Learning

The M.S. in Mathematics Teaching and Learning is comprised of a minimum of 45 credits designed to meet the needs of teachers looking to improve their instruction while becoming reflective practitioners and life-long learners who facilitate deep student learning.

Interdisciplinary courses draw on the expansive resources, research, and artifacts of the school’s Math Forum, challenging students to explore, connect, and expand their mathematical understanding through collaborative discourse that serves to connect theory and practice.

The M.S. in Mathematics Learning and Teaching program requires courses in three major areas: Core Education, Mathematics Education and Electives. Teachers may choose to supplement their focus on mathematics-education with electives from other programs within the School of Education, including Special Education and Teaching English as a Second Language or focus their electives on Mathematics Leadership and Coaching.
