Mathematics with Education

Are you ready to make the difference? Discover the formula to teaching mathematics with our expert staff and world leading researchers. You’ll gain a solid foundation in mathematical and statistical modules, while the final year combines educational theory and school experience. Time spent in the classroom will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to progress to a teacher training course such as a PGCE, or move into one of many careers where high-level mathematical skills are essential. * Benefit from outstanding teaching: in the 2016 National Student Survey 95 per cent of our final year students said that 'Staff are good at explaining things' and 100 per cent felt that 'The course is intellectually stimulating'. * Gain high level understanding of modern pure and applied mathematics, probability and statistics and enjoy an ideal preparation for teacher training courses. * Gain classroom experience in a placement module supporting mathematics teaching in a secondary or primary school for one morning a week throughout your final year. * Benefit from being taught by staff able to tailor the programme to the changing face of education. Dr Jenny Sharp who leads the Education modules has worked with schools in many different capacities, and is regularly invited to run workshops and masterclasses all around the country, including at the Royal Institution, other universities and in schools. * Sharpen your knowledge of education theory with an in depth individual project and give yourself an ideal preparation for teacher training courses. * Become a confident, effective communicator, able to present your ideas visually, verbally and in writing. Small group tutorials help you acquire these skills. In the 2016 National Student Survey 93 per cent of our final year students said that 'As a result of the course, I feel confident in tackling unfamiliar problems'.
