The subject of mathematics with the Master of Education degree, as a structural science, aims to prove statements about mathematical objects and structures according to the principles of logic and to build up and further develop mathematical theories. The theories should be described in such a general way that the results can be transferred to as many real conditions as possible. Students deal with current research topics from the specialist areas of arithmetic, geometry, algebra, analysis, stochastics, linear algebra and mathematical modeling.

While the focus of the Bachelor’s program is on the two specialist subjects, the Master of Education’s focus is more on educational sciences and subject didactics. The didactic conveyance of the specialist topics is intended to enable a deeper understanding of these. Various possibilities are presented how mathematical proofs can be carried out and tasks can be varied and learning mathematics can be discovered. In order to be able to address the heterogeneity of the students, the diversity of basic mathematical ideas, creativity and talent, arithmetic weaknesses and dyscalculia as well as their effects on teaching are highlighted.

Two subjects are studied in the teaching post for grammar schools and comprehensive schools. In addition to mathematics, the students also take a second subject and educational sciences. The practical semester is a central component of the course.
