About

The MA in Mathematics Education offered by University of East Anglia is designed for mathematics graduates with an interest in the teaching and learning of mathematics, as well as mathematics teachers at all educational levels. 

Overview

The MA in Mathematics Education offered by University of East Anglia will help you gain a thorough understanding of mathematics education, whether you’re a mathematics graduate, a mathematics teacher at any educational level, or you work in another educational profession. You will discover the latest research and thinking in a field that is strongly influenced by a wide range of disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and history.

Perhaps you are intrigued by how we can foster greater appreciation, competence and confidence in mathematics in all classrooms, for all learners. Perhaps you are more focused on the foundations of mathematics that we typically encounter in primary school. Perhaps your interest lies in the social and emotional barriers to mathematical learning for secondary pupils. Or maybe you want to get to grips with digital resources, and how they can enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics, from the primary classroom all the way through to the university lecture.

Our course consists of three core mathematics education modules, each dedicated to the key theories, main findings and foremost digital resources for mathematics teaching. You’ll complete one module on educational research methods and one on critical reading, plus one optional module and a dissertation project on a mathematics education topic of your own choosing.

You’ll produce your dissertation project under the supervision of a member of the Research in Mathematics Education (RME) Group at UEA. RME is a growing and vibrant community of researchers in mathematics education – a community which will welcome you and offer, support throughout your studies.
