Graduate Level Mathematics Curriculum Courses: How Are They Planned?

Published 2015-05-01


Even though there is much research related to the teaching and learning of K-12 mathematics, there are few studies in the literature related to university professors’ teaching. In this research report, I investigated how three professors of mathematics education structure their graduate level curriculum courses. The results show that three factors influence the ways that the professors design this course: (a) their view of mathematics curriculum, (b) their view of graduate students’ contributions to classroom atmosphere, and (c) their learning goals for the graduate students.
