The Graduate Diploma in Mathematics Education focuses on mathematics education as an area of study grounded in critical examination of teaching practice, learning theories and curriculum, and supported by analyses of socio-cultural, equity and gender issues in the teaching and learning of mathematics. It is designed to provide opportunities for graduate level study of theories and research in Mathematics Education, as well as enriched mathematical experiences, to practising teachers and administrators and to people in the community whose work involves developing mathematical literacies.
