Iowa State University's Master of School Mathematics (MSM) is designed for current secondary mathematics teachers. The degree program is built on three objectives:
- Enhance the teacher's knowledge of algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics and discrete mathematics
- Provide effective strategies for creating a student-centered classroom emphasizing problem solving
- Use of computing technology in learning and teaching mathematics
The course work totals 32 semester credits.
Completion of a MSM program will fulfill the 'master's degree in an area of endorsements' requirement listed under the certification rules for a professional teacher's certificate.
