The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) Ghana invites applications for a two-year Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences for Teachers (MMST) program for the 2022/2024 academic year. This is a special training for teachers of mathematics in Africa.
The AIMS MMST is a professional program designed to provide current teachers of mathematics an opportunity to expand the knowledge of its participants in mathematical foundations relating to core secondary school curricula, and applications of modern mathematics. Coupled with significant mathematical concepts, the program is enriched with relevant pedagogy courses to challenge its students to investigate new, innovative and research-informed methods of knowledge transfer. The MMST program is offered on a part-time basis: 70% online and 30% residential for Ghanaian Nationals, while being entirely online for other African Nationals.
The AIMS teaching and learning model carefully set up by eminent abled faculty across the globe is uniquely designed to emphasize creativity, innovation, and flexibility. The program provides both a broad overview and in-depth study of cutting-edge topics in mathematical sciences with strong computing and research skills. This offers students exposure to a range of topics, allowing them to make informed choices as to their future specialization.
The two-year MMST program consists of three phases; the skills phase, the review phase, and the research phase. The AIMS MMST program is equivalent to a 4-semester hybrid course including project-based research. Typical courses offered in the phases include the following.Table of Content
