The Mathematics Education program of Rutgers University is designed for students with strong mathematical or technical backgrounds who are interested in mathematics learning and teaching.



The Mathematics Education program of Rutgers University stresses the need for students to be familiar with the entire K–16 range of mathematics learners, issues, and current developments. As such, it is appropriate for prospective researchers in mathematics education, college-level mathematics instructors, secondary mathematics teachers, and, in exceptional cases, elementary teachers with a strong interest and background in mathematics.

While New Jersey certification is not required for entry into the program, many students are already certified and employed in New Jersey secondary or postsecondary schools. Students who are seeking New Jersey teacher certification should explore the Certification Program in Mathematics Education.

The program focuses on basic problems in the learning and teaching of mathematics, techniques and strategies for studying children’s mathematical thinking, and the uses of technology in mathematics teaching as well as on mathematics itself. Students in the program have opportunities to engage in independent study, small-group work, and traditional whole-group class sessions. Students are also involved in the ongoing research and professional development activities of the faculty and doctoral students in mathematics education.
