Two mathematics courses have been developed for the Master’s program in Mathematics Education at Towson University. These two courses are very related to the ideas of (i) teaching theory of symmetries, (ii) teaching mathematics of designs and patterns, and (iii) integrating mathematics with other disciplines.
