The goal of the programme is to prepare mathematics educators competent in both subject matter knowledge and classroom instruction at college of education level through graduate level coursework in mathematics and mathematics education; technological methodologies applicable to mathematics teaching and learning; pedagogical content knowledge and issues needed effective mathematics teaching and learning.
Being a mathematics teacher also opens bigger avenues in private home teaching for pupils whose parents can afford it.
The training the programme offers makes it possible for learners to easily veer into accounting, costing, and banking careers, apart from the career opportunities available in the pharmaceutical and mechanised industry operations for mathematicians.
