InformaçãoCourse/CS accredited by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).

The programme’s specific objectives include:

  • imparting new information about various topics in mathematics and its applications and the contact with new technologies
  • developing the capacity to reflect about fundamental aspects of teaching/learning mathematics as well as about the challenges faced by teachers in the classroom with special emphasis on implementing innovative methods to the classroom teacing of mathematics
  • developing and deepening student awareness about the evolution in basic mathematical concepts as well as the ability to reflect on its epistemological significance

Admissions Requirements

  • Hold a graduation in mathematics or related field, preferably with math teaching experience;
  • Hold a foreign higher academic degree in one of the areas described in the previous paragraph;
  • Students enrolled in Postgraduate Mathematics for Teachers in previous school years;
  • To be the holder of a school, scientific or professional curriculum that the scientific committee of the course recognizes as sufficient to attest the capacity to carry out this cycle of studies.
Note that all candidates who do not prove that they have completed the degree (or equivalent) until the end of the enrollment period, will be excluded.
