Math for Teaching: Proposal Examples

Candidates in the Math for Teaching program work on a wide range of thesis projects. Some might design classroom studies, analyzing various teaching approaches, others might create an educational website, create a curriculum for a new course, or provide a novel analysis of a math education topic

As a result of this variety, you'll notice that although proposals will in general contain the same sections, the style of presentation, length of various sections, and so forth, can vary from proposal to proposal, depending on the project.  

The following proposals are good examples to review as you begin to create your own proposal.

  • Please note that no proposal is perfect, so you should be sure to follow all of the formatting guidelines given elsewhere on the website as you finalize your proposal.
