Become a Math Teacher through the Brandeis MAT Program
As our society becomes more technological, it is increasingly affected by mathematics. Quite sophisticated mathematics is now central to the natural sciences, ecological issues, economics and our commercial and technical life. By choosing to teach math, you are preparing students to better understand the world and thus be better prepared to act in it.
Mathematics is, at the same time, a subject of the greatest depth and beauty with a history extending from antiquity. The Department of Mathematics at Brandeis attempts to make this depth and beauty manifest. It combines the informality, flexibility and general friendliness of a small department with the intellectual vigor of a faculty whose research accomplishments have placed it among the top departments in the country. When you train to become a math teacher through the Brandeis MAT program, you will be working closely with some of the world's top mathematicians.
