The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a program of study leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) degree with a concentration in Precollegiate Mathematics. The precollegiate mathematics concentration is designed for in-service teachers and consists of an eight-course sequence with two tracks - a K-8 mathematics track and a 7-12 track - with the aim of producing an in-depth, profound understanding of the mathematics taught in elementary, middle, and high school. In addition, there are six hours of independent study and thesis research.
The courses for this degree are offered as part of a cohort. All who enroll in the program will proceed through the entire sequence as a group.
