Number MAT 703
Title Research on Teaching Methods in Mathematics II
Credits 3.0
Prerequisites MAT702N

Description

This course is an extension of MAT702N and will build upon the competencies and skills obtained in that Research Methods I course. Students will further develop their abilities to find and analyze contemporary research in the teaching of secondary school Mathematics. Again, both qualitative and quantitative research will be emphasized. In this second course in Research Methods, students will be paying special attention to hypotheses, designs, statistical models and data gathering techniques of published research for the special purpose of designing their own research projects on topics germane to the teaching of secondary school Mathematics. Class instruction will also emphasize guidelines for such research designing. Open only to MAT and M.Ed. candidates for degree credit.
