Mathematics and Statistics for Mathematics Education


Students who plan to be teachers may choose mathematics either as their Master of Teaching major study or their Master of Teaching sub major study. The following advice is for those who plan mathematics or mathematical statistics as their Master of Teaching sub major study. Students planning mathematics or mathematical statistics as their major study need to do at least two subjects at 3rd year level. Please refer to the Master of Teaching website for more information.
