K-8 Mathematics Education at UTA

The Mathematics Department at UTA offers a set of six graduate courses in K-8 mathematics education, intended to help elementary and middle grades mathematics teachers improve their content knowledge in ways that will impact their understanding of mathematics as a field of endeavor for both children and adults, as well as impact their classroom teaching. One course will be offered every fall, spring, and summer (I) semester. These courses may be taken a la carte by special students, but also fulfill the content-area specialization requirement for an M.Ed. degree in Curriculum and Instruction through the College of Education.

The six courses are as follows: Click here for graduate catalog listings for these 6 courses.
