The graduate program in mathematics education is designed to enhance the professional expertise of secondary and post secondary mathematics teachers. The program is structured to meet the needs of the individual graduate students.
Completion of the program will lead to the degree: Master of Science (MS).
In addition to the requirements of the Office of Graduate Studies specified in the first section of this bulletin, the program has established the following policies and procedures for admission:
Applicants who lack adequate undergraduate preparation may be admitted with deficiencies and will be expected to take mathematics courses specified by the program coordinator.
A grade-point average of 2.75 in all undergraduate mathematics courses is required.
The applicant must have taken 30 units (crs.) of mathematics, which should include one year of calculus, two semesters of modern algebra, one semester of geometry and one semester of probability and statistics.
Normally, the baccalaureate will have been taken in mathematics or a related field.
The program is comprised of core courses and electives.
Mathematics Education is the description for the mathematics education plan of study.
A minimum of 30 approved graduate units (crs.), which must include at least 18 upper-level (700) units (crs.), are required for the degree.
Students must satisfy fully the Office of Graduate Studies requirements for advancement to candidacy stated in the first section of this bulletin.
A comprehensive exam, after all course work has been successfully completed or concurrent with the last mathematics course, must be completed.

A minimum of at least 18 units (crs.) in mathematics, which must include core courses in the following areas: algebra, combinatorics and geometry. The respective courses in the above areas are:
||Advanced Euclidean Geometry
All students must take Secondary Education 739 Advanced Study in Curriculum Mathematics (three (3) units (crs.)) and at least three (3) additional units (crs.) in computer science and/or education.
The remaining units (crs.) can be approved electives usually selected from mathematics, computer science, education or thesis – three (3) units (crs.)
A comprehensive exam, after all coursework has been successfully completed or concurrent with last mathematics course, must be completed.
Degree program approved for licensure by Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
