The master’s in Mathematics Education from DePaul University is an accelerated, six-quarter program for current and future secondary school math teachers. Meant to improve math instruction in Chicago and its suburbs, the program focuses on math content and teaching strategies and technologies, all directly tied to secondary curricular needs.


Key facts:

The only graduate program of its kind in the area, this 18-month Mathematics Education from DePaul University can be completed over a series of intensive weekend-only sessions that focus on:

  • Differential and integral calculus, numerical algorithms related to calculus and implementation of these algorithms using graphing calculators and web-based software;
  • Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry using software packages that emphasize content connected to the high school curriculum;
  • Discrete mathematical structures with an emphasis on logic, proof and mathematical reasoning;
  • Probability and statistics with an introduction to combinatorics;
  • History of elementary number theory, algebra and geometry;
  • Topics in abstract algebra that relate to high school courses in algebra, geometry and trigonometry; and
