The goal of the Department is to train and develop superior secondary school mathematics teachers and mathematics education scholars. In order to meet the demand of today's society for teachers with multiple professional skills and levels of expertise, the Department is fully committed to providing a wide spectrum of educational experiences from vocational to professional studies, to the students.

History

The Department of Mathematics Education started in 1951 as a mathematics major program within the Science Education Department. The program grew and developed into an independent department in 1991.

The graduate programs for M.A. and Ph.D. degrees were established in 1997 and 2000 respectively and seek to provide students with a strong theoretical and disciplinary foundation for the study of mathematics education.

Our graduate program aims to produce leading scholars in mathematics education as an integrated field of studies in mathematics, general education, and curriculum instruction. The program offers a balanced mix of pure and applied aspects of academia which prepares the students to develop into innovative experts of the field.

The Aim of Education

The Department aims to prepare outstanding educators for secondary school mathematics, educational professionals, and researchers, as well as to advance the profession of education through research on mathematics teaching and learning at local, national, and international levels.

The Department of Mathematics Education focuses on helping prospective teachers develop not only comprehensive knowledge and skills for teaching mathematics but also leadership in the improvement of education. The Department also produces educational experts who will become leaders in scholarly communities for mathematics education and contribute to the enhancement of both research and practice.

The graduates of the Department go on to find careers as middle and high school mathematics teachers, educational researchers, curriculum developers, educational administrators, mathematicians, and university professors after completion of their studies.
