GRADUATE DIPLOMAS IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION

AFFILIATED GRADUATE FACULTY                   The Graduate Diplomas in Mathematics Education focus on mathe-
                                              matics education as an area of study grounded in critical examination
MEMBERS                                       of teaching practice, learning theories, and curriculum, and supported

MARGARET SINCLAIR (Education)                 and learning of mathematics. The graduate diplomas are designed
WALTER WHITELEY (Mathematics & Statistics)    to provide opportunities for graduate study of theories and research
                                              in mathematics education, as well as enriched mathematical experi-
                                              ences, to practising teachers and administrators and to people in the
                                              community whose work involves developing mathematical literacies.
GEORGE FREMPONG (Education)
JENNIFER JENSON (Education)                   The Graduate Diplomas in Mathematics Education are jointly
ISRAEL KLEINER (Mathematics & Statistics)     offered by the Graduate Programme in Education and the Graduate
MARTIN MULDOON (Mathematics & Statistics)     Programme in Mathematics & Statistics. The degree concurrent
JURIS STEPRANS (Mathematics & Statistics)     option is earned in conjunction with Master’s or Doctoral studies; the
BYRON WALL (Mathematics & Statistics)         direct entry option is offered as a stand-alone graduate diploma.

                                              DEGREE CONCURRENT OPTION
                                              The degree concurrent option allows students in the appropriate
                                              graduate programmes at York University to specialize formally in the
                                              area of Mathematics Education. For those students who successfully
                                              complete both the graduate diploma and the Master’s or Doctoral
                                              degree for which they are registered, the diploma is noted on the
                                              student’s transcript and awarded at the convocation at which the
                                              degree is awarded or at the subsequent convocation.

                                              ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
                                              Registration for the graduate diploma occurs after the candidate
                                              has been admitted to the Master of Education, the Master of Arts in
                                              Mathematics for Teachers, or the Doctoral programme in Education.
                                              Applications are assessed on the basis of a statement of interest
                                              together with the information contained within the file as a whole.
                                              Consideration is given to the combined profile of demonstrated
                                              academic standing, background and experience, including
                                              professional background and experience, and potential to pursue and
                                              benefit from graduate studies. In addition, students should have a
                                              strong interest in mathematics education as a component of their plan
                                              of study. Successful completion of at least 12 university level credits
                                              in mathematics is strongly recommended as preparation for some
                                              of the courses offered within the program; however, the graduate
                                              diploma may be satisfied by taking other listed courses.

                                              Admission to and continuation in the diploma programme for
                                              students with no postsecondary background in mathematics will
                                              be conditional upon successful completion of Mathematics 1580

                                              study. These 6 credits will be in addition to the normal requirements
                                              for the diploma.
