MS in Mathematics Learning and Teaching
Drexel University School of Education
Today’s students need teachers who are well-versed in their subject matter and up-to-date in the best practices for teaching.
Drexel University’s Master of Science in Mathematics Learning and Teaching emphasizes mathematics content knowledge, pedagogy, current issues in mathematics education and ways to integrate all three together in meaningful ways.
Our MS students learn to implement learner-centered and problem-based instructional practices that address the Common Core Practice Standards and make use of technology to meet the needs of math teachers and all math learners.
MS students work independently and in groups to analyze open-ended problems and explore solutions, focusing on the subject areas of the middle and secondary mathematics curriculum. Both in their own classrooms and in our online classes, our students practice and discuss specific problem solving and pedagogical skills that are key to classroom success.
The MS in Mathematics Learning and Teaching is for middle and high school mathematics teachers and mathematically-inclined elementary school teachers who:
- Have at least two years of mathematics teaching experience
- Have completed at least two semesters (or three quarters) of university calculus and at least one university mathematics course beyond university calculus
- Are committed to implementing learner-centered and problem-based instructional practices that value multiple solution methods
