About the Programme and Detailed Course Descriptions
Course Offerings for: Summer 2003
Fall-Winter 2003/2004

(i)  Admission Requirements

The minimum entry requirement is an honours degree or equivalent in mathematics, or an (ordinary) B.A. in Mathematics plus a B.Ed. The minimum grade requirement is a "B-" average. This reflects the different nature of the "typical" applicant for that option: a mature student, normally a practising high-school mathematics teacher who obtained her/his B.A. several years ago.  There is less direct correlation between grades and potential to do graduate work in this case.  The admission process here takes into account additional information, often including an interview between the applicant and the Teachers' Coordinator.

(ii)  Degree Requirements

Core Courses:

Each student in the programme is required to take Fundamentals of Mathematics (5020 6.0) and History of Mathematics (5400 6.0).

A thesis is not required for this degree, nor is it expected. A total of six (6) 5000-level courses is the requirement for the degree. 5000-level (Teachers) and 6000-level (Regular) courses are not interchangeable, even though, occasionally, students in the Teachers Programme will take a 6000-level course for credit.

New and continuing students will choose their programme of study in consultation with the Teachers' Coordinator and subject to the approval of the Graduate Director.
