The MAEd in mathematics is designed for a teacher whose primary teaching assignment has been in the area of pre-secondary or secondary mathematics. Prior teaching experience is not necessary for admission to this program, but certification to teach is required for admission. Admission materials must include a letter of recommendation from someone aware of the applicant's performance or potential as a classroom teacher.
Students holding the equivalent of an undergraduate mathematics major and certified to teach at the secondary level will complete the secondary level concentration. Students who earned the equivalent of an undergraduate concentration in mathematics and are certified to teach at the pre-secondary level will complete the pre-secondary-level concentration.
By the end of this program successful graduates will be able to: demonstrate advanced knowledge of the mathematical pedagogy and content appropriate for the student in certification level; respond effectively to differences in how students learn; improve their capabilities and initiative in becoming more responsible for their personal and professional growth; and to serve as an educational leader.
