The James Madison University's Mathematics program extends the professional competence of secondary mathematics teachers through an in-depth study of mathematics and mathematics teaching and learning. 


About this Degree

The Master of Education (M. Ed.) in Mathematics at James Madison University prepares high school teachers for positions of instructional leadership as master teachers of mathematics. Program participants will demonstrate their knowledge through an innovative, completely online curriculum.

The M. Ed. in mathematics is a collaborative effort of the College of Education and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics that 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 education courses will provide opportunities for teachers to better understand technologies for learning and how to continue to develop as a professional educator. The M. Ed. is designed to develop teachers' understanding of and ability to apply education research within their own practice. The M. Ed. content is consistent with the recommendations of the Mathematical Education of Teachers' report of the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences.
