M.A. in Education, Math Education
The purpose of the MA in Mathematics Education program is to promote and support teacherleaders to be knowledgeable both in mathematics content and in the use of pedagogical practices that enable all students to learn mathematics. For CA teachers holding a multiple subject credential, the mathematics courses required for this program will also satisfy the requirements for a supplementary authorization to teach mathematics at the middle school level.
Teachers will work together to:
· Increase their mathematical knowledge and pedagogical knowledge
· Examine current equity issues in mathematics
· Develop leadership skills
· Design classroom research to answer relevant questions about student’s mathematical learning
