Learning Opportunities for Mathematics Education

Experiential learning is a significant aspect of the Mathematics Education program at MSU Moorhead. Through exploration of local classrooms, tutoring, social gatherings and more, you’ll uncover countless abilities and opportunities.

MSUM's Field Experience is committed to providing exceptional early and ongoing field experiences in education for teacher candidates. We collaborate with school partners in planning, implementing, and assessing each experience. Teacher candidates will have opportunities for a wide array of experiences by the time they have completed their education programs.

As part of Math Club, you’ll discover just how much fun math can be. Math Club provides a social venue for you to discuss, learn and teach math at biweekly meetings, social gatherings and community activities. You’ll also hear from guest speakers, including professors who discuss their research interests and alumni working in the industry, teaching or attending graduate school.

Explore new mathematics concepts and ideas from industry professionals at the Minnesota Council of Teachers of Mathematics Spring Conference. Each year, professors take students to this conference as a resource for improving skills in mathematics instruction.

The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Grant provides scholarships and internships for talented science and math undergraduates. Interns work with our partners, including Fargo and Moorhead Public School Districts and Lakes Country Service Cooperative, to assist in the delivery of summer opportunities for K-12 students in the subjects of science and math. Scholars will receive up to three years of forgivable loans and partial living expenses to pursue secondary licensure in mathematics or science (physics, chemistry, earth or life science) in the state of Minnesota. Scholars will also receive special training in best practices for teaching science and math to English language learners (ELL), have the opportunity to attend regional and national conferences, and be part of a mentoring network. Scholars agree to teach in a high needs school district upon receiving licensure, providing invaluable service to the diverse K-12 students and numerous districts in our region.
