About the Program

JMU | Master’s | Online – The Master of Education (MEd) in Mathematics prepares secondary teachers for positions of instructional leadership as master teachers of mathematics. The program extends the professional competence of secondary mathematics teachers through an in-depth study of mathematics and mathematics teaching and learning. Program participants will demonstrate their knowledge through individual and collaborative projects and presentations, field-based curriculum implementation and evaluation, and the use of reflective classroom inquiry.

The program, which is a collaborative effort of the College of Education and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, is designed to provide opportunities for mathematics teachers to deepen their understanding of mathematics by learning advanced mathematical topics in relation to the mathematics they actually teach. The program will also help prepare teachers to teach advanced secondary mathematics courses, such as Advanced Placement Calculus or Statistics. The program content is consistent with the recommendations of the Mathematical Education of Teachers report of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences.
