Mathematics Education

School of Teacher Education

Welcome to Mathematics Education at UW!

The goal of the mathematics education program at UW is to produce mathematics educators who are innovators and leaders in the teaching field as well as capable mathematicians.  All graduates earn a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics Education (grades 6-12) AND a concurrent major in Mathematics.  A concurrent major will ensure that graduates are "highly qualified" teachers and will expand career possibilities.

Our mathematics education program is Nationally Recognized by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and NCATE.  Our program underwent a rigorous accreditation process and is continually assessed to ensure that the NCATE standards are exceeded.  

The program includes courses in pedagogy, teaching methods, special education, and mathematics with an ongoing emphasis on technology use in the classroom and multidisciplinary education.  Authentic classroom experiences are embedded throughout the program.  Undergraduates also benefit from collaboration with professors and graduate students from the Science and Mathematics Teaching Center (SMTC) located here at UW.

For those who already have a Bachelor's Degree in mathematics and are interested in becoming certified to teach, we offer a Post-Baccalaureate Program that will lead to initial Wyoming teacher certification. The credits earned in this program can also be applied to a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, if you choose to pursue a graduate degree.

Undergraduate programs:

  • Mathematics Education with a concurrent major in Mathematics
  • Post-Baccalaureate Program in Mathematics Education

Graduate programs:

  • Middle-level Mathematics Endorsement
    • This program is intended for teachers who do not already have a mathematics content certification/degree
  • Master's in Curriculum and Instruction
  • Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction
  • Ph.D. in Mathematics Education
