The student has to be competent in the field of mathematics, i.e. he should possess a combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes that enables him to function as a teacher of mathematics in secondary school. If he does not have a Master degree of Mathematics or a comparable discipline, he must ask permittion to follow the course and he may have to follow a remedial program and do a test.

- This course prepares students to become a teacher of mathematics in secondary school. The learning outcomes are derived from the so-called basic competences of a teacher in secondary school as described by the Flemish Government (see http://www.ond.vlaanderen.be/nieuws/archief/2007/2007p/files/0420-bijlage4.pdf).

The first part of the course is centered around basic skills regarding the preparation of mathematics lessons: the official mathematics curricula in Flanders, making a lesson plan, making and correcting a test, planning a sequence of lessons, writing texts for pupils, making electronic presentations, ... Moreover, in these lessons attention is paid to different opinions regarding mathematics education. The second part of the course deals with a number of themes, selected from the following list:

- The normal distribution
- A new approach to statistics: a videotaped lesson of statistics, the use of simulation in statistics, ...
- Descriptive statistics in grade 9-10
- A computer program for dynamic geometry: Geogebra
- Mathematics education taking into account language problems
- Spatial geometry in grades 9-12
- applications of mathematics and mathematical modelling
- national and international tests dealing with mathematics education: PISA, TIMSS, ...
- New Math versus Realistic Mathematics Education
- Problem solving skills and research skills in mathematics
- Learning disabilities and mathematics education / High ability and mathematics education
- Learning algebra: the transition from arithmetic to algebra, symbol sense and basic skills

The course has an international dimension.
