About

The Mathematics Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is for teachers, tutors and others interested in how mathematics is taught and learnt. The programme gives students the opportunity to explore issues in mathematics teaching, to consider the theoretical underpinnings, and to carry out a rigorous study of mathematical learning.

Overview

In the two core modules students consider research-based developments in mathematics teaching and their related sociological, psychological, curricular and linguistic issues, and they engage with mathematics itself, finding implications for teaching. 

Optional modules enable students to explore, for example, learning with digital technologies (Digital Technologies for Mathematical Learning), or learning specifically aimed at primary school levels of education (Primary Mathematics Teaching: Mathematics and Pedagogy), while the independent dissertation/report module offers students the opportunity to carry out a sustained and systematic piece of academic or professional enquiry in their chosen area of mathematics education research interest.

Careers

Graduates of this Mathematics Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as secondary school heads of mathematics, while others have jobs as primary school mathematics leads. Graduates can also be found working as head teachers and mathematics education lecturers.

Employability

For most teachers, the Mathematics Education MA enhances their satisfaction in teaching and adds a thoughtful critique that balances the pressures of teaching. It develops skills in mathematics, pedagogy, research methods and writing. This programme is a vital stepping-stone to a higher degree in mathematics education and a post in teacher education or education research. For non-teachers, this programme develops transferable skills of writing, critical analysis and understanding of how a mathematical perspective differs from other forms of reasoning.
