Mathematics is integral to so much in life, but many people see themselves as lacking in mathematical ability and therefore lack confidence to engage with mathematics. So the challenges to mathematics education are myriad – but so are the ways to explore and tackle them.
Our one-year MA Mathematics Education is designed for mathematics graduates with an interest in the teaching and learning of mathematics, as well as mathematics teachers at all educational levels.
You will learn about seminal theories on the teaching and learning of mathematics, about the main findings from international studies that explore its improvement, and about the latest technologies used in mathematics teaching. We will introduce you to key methods of educational research, which you will put into practice by completing a research project on a mathematics education topic, with the support of a specialist from UEA’s Research in Mathematics Education Group.
