BSME is a semester-long program in Budapest, Hungary, designed for American and Canadian undergraduates and recent graduates interested in teaching middle school or high school mathematics. Participants will study the Hungarian approach to learning and teaching, in which a strong and explicit emphasis is placed on problem solving, mathematical creativity, and communication. Participants will also form a professional community of teachers, committed to providing such learning experiences to their students, that will extend beyond their time in Budapest.
The BSME instructors will follow their own mathematical upbringing in Hungary and will bring a creative spirit to the program. They will challenge our participants to take part in creating, rather than just learning, the material. All courses will be taught in English, and BSME instructors have had experience teaching both at the secondary level and college level. Class sizes will be small. BSME classes will be held at the College International Budapest, near the city center, together with other study abroad programs (including BSM).
