The *Master of Education* in
Mathematics prepares secondary teachers for
positions of instructional leadership as master teachers of
mathematics. The
program extends the professional competence of secondary mathematics
teachers
through an in-depth study of mathematics and mathematics teaching and
learning.
Program participants will demonstrate their knowledge through
individual and
collaborative projects and presentations, field-based curriculum
implementation
and evaluation, and the use of reflective classroom inquiry. The program,
which is a collaborative effort of the College of Education and the
Department
of Mathematics and Statistics, is designed to provide opportunities for
mathematics teachers to deepen their understanding of mathematics by
learning
advanced mathematical topics in relation to the mathematics they
actually teach.
The program will also help prepare teachers to teach advanced secondary
mathematics courses, such as Advanced Placement Calculus or
Statistics. The program content is consistent with the
recommendations of the *Mathematical
Education of Teachers* report of the Conference
Board of the Mathematical Sciences.

**Prerequisites:
**

Students
should have completed undergraduate mathematics (15 credits or more)
including a
calculus sequence and linear algebra. An undergraduate major in
mathematics or additional mathematics courses beyond linear algebra
will be
helpful, but not necessary.
