A letter was sent to local schools advertising the program and an information session that we will be holding for prospective students. This information session will take place Wednesday, March 11, 2009 at 5pm in North Ross 620.

If you know anyone who would like to attend you may pass along a link to the following letter http://garsia.math.yorku.ca/~zabrocki/ma4teacherslet.pdf.

It has been suggested that we have an information session for the M.A. for Teachers program with current students as well. I teach on Mondays from 6-9pm and I can come after the algebra class one evening if you want to discuss any issues. Comments?

### What is this program about

York University has an active part-time M.A. program especially designed for teachers. We welcome in particular students who have been away from formal schooling for some years. We recognize that teachers interested in this program may have completed their university studies some time ago, and our courses have been designed to take this into account. This program has been in existence since 1975. Peter Gibson, Jane Heffernan, Stan Kochman, Martin Muldoon, Margaret Sinclair, Juris Steprans, Paul Szeptycki, Byron Wall, Walter Whiteley, Augustine Wong, Mike Zabrocki and Hongmei Zhu are among its recent teaching staff.

The program focuses on giving students an exposure to a variety of mathematical subjects providing to those that are teachers a broader experience that they can bring to their own classrooms. The range of this program gives students an historic perspective as well as chances to practice techniques of problem solving, writing and presenting mathematics. These elements are relevant for teachers of mathematics at any level. This program does not prepare students for study at the Ph.D. level in mathematics nor does it lead to teacher certification in Ontario. Courses in the program will be scheduled in the evenings, usually with a three-hour session once a week for a course in the Fall-Winter term, and two three-hour sessions per course in the Summer term. Ordinarily, two courses are offered in the Fall-Winter session and one course in the Summer session.
