Scholarship

Students understand and can select from important issues, trends, theories, paradigms of research, and research findings in the field of mathematics education to create a rationale, theoretical framework, and literature review for a research study.

Research

Students understand research methods in mathematics education and can a) locate an interesting and important problem; b) conduct a literature review to situate the problem; c) develop a conceptual framework; d) establish focused research questions; e) choose and implement appropriate methods for collecting and analyzing data; f) address issues of research quality such as validity, reliability, and significance; and g) effectively communicate their work both orally and in writing.

Professionalism

Students have developed a level of professionalism that enables and compels them to continually seek opportunities to improve their own practice, keep abreast of advances and developments in the field both locally and nationally, and provide leadership in professional, school, and community organizations.

Spiritual Stewardship

Students strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ in both their personal and professional lives, seek consistency between their understanding of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and the insights gained from conducting their master's thesis, and use this enriched understanding of teaching and learning to nurture the divine potential of all in their spheres of influence.
