Mathematics Education Online, M.Ed.

The M.Ed. major in Mathematics Education seeks to advance early- and mid-career mathematics teachers’ ability to effectively implement standards-based instructional practices.

The program’s chief goal is to strengthen secondary students’ mathematical understanding. We achieve this by providing mathematics teachers with opportunities to deepen their understanding of their learners from diverse backgrounds and to explore issues of equity in mathematics classrooms. You can complete this program in four semesters.

  • You will learn to conduct research in your own classroom in order to inform instruction and share the knowledge gained in a professional community of teachers.
  • You will learn advanced mathematics coursework and will strengthen mathematical content knowledge.

The program of study is framed by the Extended Georgia Framework for Teaching, the principles and standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the core propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. It is available to teachers who hold a clear and renewable T4 certificate in math.
