Doctoral Program in Mathematics Education

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado will start reviewing applications for Fall 2024 semester for its revised doctoral program in Mathematics Education in about a month. The deadline to submit application is February 15th and February 1st is a free application day.
We support almost all admitted students with Teaching Assistantships that come with tuition waiver for four to five years (no additional application is needed). We do not require GRE. I provided further information about PhD program below.
Please do share this with your students who are finishing up a master’s degree in Mathematics or in a related field (with 18 credit-hours of graduate mathematics course work) and interested in conducting research in Mathematics Education. For questions and inquires, send us an email at mathedphd@unco.edu.

Defining Math Fluency: What Fluency Really Means and Why It Matters​

Nov. 6 | 4 p.m. EDT

Join Amplify and Math Teacher Lounge co-host Bethany Lockhart Johnson for our new math edWebinar on Nov. 6!

In this edWebinar, we explore the concept and value of fluency in the context of grade-level math standards, and consider how these standards were developed to build student success. You’ll learn the consequences of teaching fluency improperly—or not at all—and how fluency looks and sounds in different grades.

This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary school teachers as well as middle school teachers and building-level leaders. Don’t miss out—learn more and register today!

Mathematics Teacher: Learning Teaching

"Students need to know the meaning of mathematics vocabulary words—whether written or spoken—in order to understand and communicate #mathematical ideas."
Join us for the next "Mathematics Teacher: Learning Teaching" (MTLT) Journal Club meeting as we discuss the legacy article “Helping #Teachers Connect Vocabulary and Conceptual Understanding."
Free and open to all! - On September 5

Exploring and Strengthening University Mathematics Courses for Secondary Teacher Preparation

Webinar organized by the editors of ZDM-Mathematics Education on the journal’s next special issue 4, 2023: Exploring and Strengthening University Mathematics Courses for Secondary Teacher Preparation. Date: Thursday, 28th September 2023, 17:00 – 18:30 CET (11:00 – 12:30 EST)

GTEN'S GLOBAL MATH LESSON

We are honored beyond belief to have the Global Teacher Empowerment Network--with AIMSSEC, BUBBLY MATHS, and friends--inaugurate Global Math Week 2023 with their Global Maths and Science Lesson. The goal is to break the world record for the largest lesson held on the planet on the same day. They decided October 10th is the day to do it! And it is a really cool math lesson they have in store! See the lesson and the registration details here. What a maths bonanza for Global Math Week!

Doctoral Program in Mathematics Education

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado will start reviewing applications for Fall 2024 semester for its revised doctoral program in Mathematics Education in about a month. The deadline to submit application is February 15th and February 1st is a free application day.
We support almost all admitted students with Teaching Assistantships that come with tuition waiver for four to five years (no additional application is needed). We do not require GRE. I provided further information about PhD program below.
Please do share this with your students who are finishing up a master’s degree in Mathematics or in a related field (with 18 credit-hours of graduate mathematics course work) and interested in conducting research in Mathematics Education.

Brief information about the revised program: This program is designed for graduate students interested in specializing in mathematics teaching and learning in grades 6-14. Our innovative approach to mathematical pedagogy assumes that a deep understanding of mathematics is fundamental to teaching mathematics, for engaging in mathematics education research, and for supporting reform in mathematics education. The program has three major strands: mathematics, mathematics education, and preparing grades 6-14 mathematics teachers. This program is suited to secondary mathematics teachers who want to continue their education and move into mathematics leadership jobs in K-12 education or a faculty position in higher education, as well as to those with graduate work in mathematics who want to focus on research in mathematics education. In addition, many of our students receive teaching assistantships to help offset the cost of living and part of fees. We provide a tuition waiver to all TAs (during the first 4 to 5 years of the program) (i.e., no tuition is paid by the graduate student; however, insurance and other student fees are the responsibility of the student).

Graduates of the program will be able to teach mathematics at several levels, perform research, engage in and further ongoing efforts to improve mathematics education for all students, and serve as leaders in mathematics education.
