MS in Mathematics Learning and Teaching Overview Drexel University’s accredited online Master’s of Science in Mathematics Learning and Teaching represents a highly evolved synthesis of research-based practices designed to equip teachers with techniques to help students reason through mathematical challenges with an analytical multiple-solution approach. The program provides teachers with the disposition, skills and breadth of expertise needed to implement problem-based and technology-intensive instruction that is student-centered. Ideal for teachers interested in further study and earning positions in cutting-edge mathematics learning and teaching, this program also equips students with leadership skills that will enable them advocate better educational practices in their home schools and districts. We also offer a Certificate of Graduate Study in Mathematics Learning and Teaching which consists of five 3-credit courses that prepare teachers for further study and development in exceptional mathematics teaching and learning. The Math Forum @ DrexelThe Math Forum @ Drexel is an online community bringing together tens of thousands of students, teachers, educators, and mathematics enthusiasts to solve mathematic problems and learn from each other.
