About

The graduate programs (MEd & MA) in Mathematics Education offered by University of British Columbia are part or the graduate offerings in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy.

Overview

Students in the Mathematics Education program offered by University of British Columbia can pursue a wide variety of research and professional interests in mathematics teaching and learning. The math education program has a legacy of large-scale research projects, such as the Early Numeracy Project and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMMS), which involve a network of regional, national, and international scholars.
