What will I learn?

The Master of Science (Mathematics for Educators) is designed to cater to the professional needs of mathematics educators.

The programme emphasises the acquisition of wide and in-depth content knowledge in mathematics as well as its linkage to mathematics teaching. You will have the opportunity to study courses in different areas of mathematics, conducted by active working mathematicians, many of them holding a qualification in teaching of mathematics.

A strong mastery of mathematics will enable educators to teach better and to promote higher order thinking among students in the learning of mathematics. Mathematics specialists in education institutes will also benefit from this programme because a good understanding of mathematics is crucial for handling various tasks related to mathematics education, such as the design of contemporary and rigorous curriculum, assessment of mathematics learning, and development of teaching resources.

Level 1 courses will deal with the teaching of selected topics in tandem with the mathematics content. Level 2 courses enable you to develop further expertise in a number of areas of your choice. The core course, Mathematics Inquiry, will provide you with the opportunity to examine the current research in an area of modern mathematics.

The programme is open to graduates in Mathematics as well as graduates in non-Mathematics disciplines, who have a strong mathematics background to pursue a study of mathematics at the Master's level.
