  • MS in Mathematics Learning and Teaching

    Overview

    Drexel University’s accredited online Master’s of Science in Mathematics Learning and Teaching represents a highly evolved synthesis of research-based practices designed to equip teachers with techniques to help you reason through mathematical challenges with an analytical multiple-solution approach.

    The program provides you with the disposition, skills and breadth of expertise needed to implement problem-based and technology-intensive instruction that is student-centered. Ideal for teachers interested in further study and earning positions in cutting-edge mathematics learning and teaching, this program also equips you with leadership skills that will enable you to advocate better educational practices in your home school and district. 

    We also offer a Certificate of Graduate Study in Mathematics Learning and Teaching which consists of five 3-credit courses that prepares teachers for further study and development in exceptional mathematics teaching and learning.
