Mathematics education emphasis, Ph.D.

The School of Education and Division of Teaching, Learning, Leadership and Policy offer a Ph.D. in education with an emphasis in mathematics education. The Ph.D. prepares educational researchers who inquire into pressing problems in P-12 mathematics teaching and learning.

Faculty expertise includes culturally responsive mathematics education, equity in mathematics education, pre-service mathematics teacher education, support of English learners in mathematics classrooms, and STEM education. Mathematics education faculty often collaborate in grant-funded research (e.g. NSF and IES) with colleagues in the SOE, across campus (e.g. engineering), and nationally.
