This program prepares graduates to take an active role in mathematics education reform as researchers and teachers. In the mathematics education courses, graduates study such pedagogical issues as: cognition, effective uses of technology, philosophical issues related to teaching, quantitative and qualitative research techniques, and trends in curricular, instructional and assessment reform. Mathematics courses include work in analysis and algebra, and a variety of other topics in modern mathematics. Graduates are prepared to teach a wide range of undergraduate mathematics courses, teach undergraduate and graduate mathematics education courses, work with pre-service and in-service teachers, study the effects of cooperative learning strategies; analyze innovative uses of technology, enhance understanding of the learning process in mathematics; study past and future directions in mathematics education, and participate in projects funded by the NSF and DOE.
