The Educational Specialist degree in Mathematics Education with a PreK – 8th grade emphasis is designed for experienced math teachers who hold a master’s degree and T-5 certification in elementary, middle school, or special education (math concentration). Students will deepen their subject knowledge while learning new teaching methods and completing an applied project. The hybrid schedule (6-8 Saturday meetings per semester) makes this a convenient program for teachers. No GRE or MAT scores required for admissions.
Below is a video from Graham Fletcher, previous student and MTBoS Superstar, discussing his experience in the program.
K-5 Mathematics Endorsement Available
The K-5 endorsement, which can be a part of either the Mathematics Education M.Ed. or Ed.S. degrees or as a standalone endorsement, includes four courses designed to increase elementary teachers’ ability to teach mathematics to all students. Our coursework prepares you to more effectively help your students meet changing and challenging new math standards and expectations. To earn your endorsement, you will take four courses covering topics including: the main content areas of K-5 math (numbers and operations, geometry and measurement, algebra, and statistics); learning theory; methods of instruction; and the effective use of technology and manipulatives.
