Mathematics with Mathematics Education

Have you thought about how you learn mathematics, and about why mathematics is easy or difficult to learn? Do you think there are ways of teaching mathematics that could make it more interesting and more accessible to more people? Perhaps you've even considered becoming a teacher of mathematics yourself. If so, Loughborough's Mathematics with Mathematics Education (MME) course would be an excellent choice for you. This degree course involves substantial study of rigorous mathematics; 75% of the course is taken up with mathematics modules, which students share with those on other mathematics-based degrees. It thus provides the solid mathematical skills valued by employers across numerous industries. What distinguishes this degree is the additional opportunity to study psychological and sociological research on the teaching and learning of mathematics, to gain experience of working in a school, and to undertake a substantial education research project in collaboration with a member of academic staff. This provides excellent preparation for students interested in becoming mathematics teachers, and also for anyone who wishes to broaden their skill set to include critical analysis of the latest research studies, oral debating and presentation skills, and academic report writing.
