# Mathematics Education

## Why Utah?

To teach mathematics well one must have a real interest in the subject along with a strong grasp of mathematical ideas well beyond the level at which one teaches. In addition, one must have a good understanding of how young people learn and think about mathematics, what their questions and problems are at different stages of growth. It is our goal to provide you with these skills in our program.
