M Ed in Mathematics Education

 

Key Features of the Program

The main aim of this programme is to prepare teachers, teacher educators, material developers, researchers in the field of mathematics education. Specifically, the prospective teachers will be able to:

  • follow the latest principles and methodology in mathematics teaching
  • undertake small scale research to improve their own pedagogical skill
  • design and deliver a short term teacher development packages for mathematics teachers
  • develop appropriate mathematics curricula, textbooks, modules and projected and non-projected materials.
  • educate preservice and inservice teachers for effective teaching of mathematics
  • carry out several activities to promote the importance of mathematics education
