Secondary Mathematics Education MSc, MEd

OVERVIEW

Our graduate program is designed to help teachers develop insights into the nature of mathematics and its place in the school curriculum. Teachers will become familiar with research on how secondary students learn mathematics, and with current ideas on how best to teach the subject. This is an opportune time for teachers to examine curriculum changes and upgrade their qualifications.

The program stresses the human aspects of mathematics. We emphasize the role of mathematics in society and the natural development of mathematics as a growing, changing, entity. Developments in the school mathematics curriculum, and in pedagogy, will be related to historical, cultural, and psychological forces operating within society.

The goal is to produce teachers who have a broad understanding of mathematics and mathematics education, and who will be qualified to deal with rapid curriculum change in the next several decades. To this end, the Faculty of Education and the Department of Mathematics have collaborated to develop six courses specifically for secondary mathematics teachers.
