UNC is recognized for its unique PhD program in Educational Mathematics, which is housed in the School of Mathematical Sciences without a competing Ph.D. program in mathematics. Instead, our program in Educational Mathematics has a balance of both mathematics education and doctoral-level mathematics courses. As such, mathematics educators and mathematicians in the school collaborate on teaching, scholarly, and service endeavors. The visiting professor will have an opportunity to
* co-teach mathematics and mathematics education courses such as discrete math, linear algebra, abstract algebra, higher geometry, and the secondary methods course with graduate students,
* supervise student teachers; and
* collaborate with other mathematics educators and mathematicians on grant-related activities, service, and outreach efforts.
