Instructor: Dr. Réka SZÁSZ

Course objectives

The aim of the course is to give an overview of Mathematics education in Hungary through observing classes in a wide range of schools and reflecting on these experiences. The class will be scheduled in a single 4 hour period, with school visits and seminars on alternating weeks.

Sample schools

(The selection of schools will have to be accommodated to the schedule of the course)

Sample seminar topics

(The selection of the topics will be adjusted to issues arising during school visits)


Note: Attendance for this course is a must. Passing the course requires attending at least 75% of classes. If a student misses a lesson observation they will still have to write a report (based on interviews of two classmates about their impressions, and the school's homepage where available in English).

Practical Information

The course can accommodate a maximum of 8 students.
Classes observed will be mostly in Hungarian, but the instructor will translate.
