Course content


The course is aimed primarily at teachers of Mathematics at second level including those who may not have Mathematics to honours degree level. Applications are also welcome from prospective second level teachers and from other professionals in the second level education community.

Course Structure

Two thirds of the course will consist of Mathematics and one third will be Mathematics Education. The Mathematics component of the course will be delivered by the Mathematics Department of Maynooth University. Topics will include: Number Theory, the History of Mathematics, Problem Solving and Proof, Geometry, Probability and Statistics, Algebra and Analysis. Attention will be paid in each module to the ways in which these topics could be used to enrich the teaching of Mathematics at second level.

A panel of international experts will deliver the Mathematical Education component. These modules will introduce students to the latest research in this field and will draw on students experience as teachers.

Career Options

The Mathematics modules aim to improve the skill set of Mathematics teachers by deepening their understanding of Mathematics, especially the Mathematics underlying the second level curriculum.
