MSERC Course of Study (COS)

Summer Session One-2013 Scholarship being offered

The Mathematics & Science Education Resource Center offers two graduate level Courses of Study (COS) for school mathematics teachers.  These 15 credit-hour programs help teachers achieve higher levels of success in the classroom through deep content understanding, support of state and national content standards and models of effective student-centered pedagogies.  Designed for the target audience of school mathematics teachers, the COS has grown into an effective means for high school science teachers and elementary mathematics teachers to improve their practice.
