The M.Sc in Mathematics Education is designed to serve Mathematics teachers who are established as well as recent graduates who wish to embark on a career teaching Mathematics. The course is designed to provide opportunities for teachers to reflect on their existing practices and engage in extended academic study to support their practice and their continuing professional development.  The course provides an indepth mathematical content required for school curricula and beyond, including history of mathematics and problem solving in mathematics as well as a study of the psychology and philosophy of teaching and learning mathematics. It also provides knowledge on modern methodologies of teaching mathematics including the use of manipulatives and ICT.
