Mission & Goals

Main Content

The TCU Andrews Institute for Research in Mathematics & Science Education is a leader in the exploration, discovery, and application of innovative and effective approaches to mathematics and science education. We work cooperatively with the College of Education and College of Science & Engineering in our quest to serve the educational needs of faculty and students. We support and conduct research in mathematics and science education; prepare TCU mathematics and science education majors to be reflective, ethical, and innovative teachers committed to all learners; and recruit and support mathematics and science educators beyond our campus. We hope these efforts will inspire people, especially those hitherto underrepresented, to choose careers in these disciplines. By embracing diverse viewpoints, methodologies, and populations, and outreach to the educational and general community alike, we believe that teaching and learning are made more accessible, relevant and effective; and that, through the expansion of mathematics and science literacy, society will be well served.
