The TCU Andrews Institute of Mathematics and Science Education, housed in the College
of 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.
The Andrews Institute funds faculty and students research, summer programming for youth, and student scholarships. Four primary faculty (Ph.D Hokayem, Quebec Fuentes, Switzer, and Weinburgh) and 17 associated faculty work to accomplish the mission and goals of the Andrews Institute.
