Notes/Description

The Master of Arts in Teaching School Mathematics (MATSM) degree is focused on what teachers actually do. Courses weave together math content and practice-based strategies for math teaching to deepen your students’ understanding of the content you they teach, and strengthen your their teaching practice. Courses are differentiated to accommodate teachers of all levels, K-12. The program is designed to fit teachers’ schedules. All courses are fully online and can be taken from anywhere. The bulk of the coursework is completed during the summer. GREs are not required. Students can begin the program in any summer. Students can complete the program in two calendar years by taking three courses each summer and two courses each academic year. During the 2nd year, students will complete a classroom-based action research project during the school year, in consultation with their advisor and a faculty committee, then present their results in their final term.
