The Department of Mathematics at the University of Idaho offers a Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics (M.A.T.) degree both on campus and by distance learning through Idaho Engineering Outreach. The distance education courses are offered in a video format. (Click on the "Courses" tab at left for a list of available video courses and a description of the format. See the the Engineering Outreach website for details on registration and fees.) All requirements for the degree may be completed by distance -- it is not necessary to come to the University of Idaho campus to complete any part of this degree program.
The M.A.T. is a nonthesis degree requiring 30 credits of coursework. It is designed primarily for certified teachers who wish to strengthen their subject matter preparation. (Receiving this degree does not give certification in high school teaching.) In some cases, the M.A.T. may qualify students to teach at some community colleges. If you are interested in this possibility, we recommend that you inquire with colleges at which you might be interested in teaching to see if they acknowledge the M.A.T. as appropriate preparation.
