Overview

The primary focus of mathematics education is the undergraduate program, but there is a graduate component. This component includes a mathematics education option in the Master of Arts degree and the Doctor of Philosophy degree.
Typically, there is at least one seminar in mathematics education per semester open to graduate students and faculty. The Mathematics education faculty is involved in many major National Science Foundation grants: the Systemic Initiative for Montana Mathematics and Science (SIMMS), Six Through Eight Mathematics (STEM) Project, Systemic Teacher Excellence Preparation (STEP), the Show-Me Project, and The Center for Learning and Teaching in the West (CLT West). Because of the NSF grants, there are frequent mathematics and science education visitors to campus.
