    The first-ever MEd (Elementary and Middle School Education) with a specialty
    in Mathematics cohort experienced a mini baby boom during the two-year
    program. While learning new strategies about how to help students understand
    mathematics, the cohort’s numbers outside the classroom increased. MSVU
    Associate Professor Genevičve Boulet suggested this may "add up" to the fact
    a baby was always present in the classroom.

    The new MEds will bring their new appreciation and insight about mathematics
    back to their classrooms and workplaces, to help primary to Grade 9 students
    learn what’s behind how they do the math.

    The Master of Education (Elementary and Middle School Education) with a
    specialty in Mathematics degree was developed by MSVU faculty to help
    improve math understanding. After this experience, MSVU has decided to add
    to its offerings by extending this program to include Grades 9 to 12. The
    first cohort in the newly-extended master's degree began this past July.

    And the babies… two more are on the way.
