Each school plans to have 10 seats available.
MME as a degree programme is intended to transcend disciplinary boundaries and promotes new viewpoints. It serves also as an in-service training course for many teachers already working in schools. The degree programme is aimed at the revision of conventional teaching techniques of mathematics, especially in school levels with inter-subject relationships, technology and group activities. For the first batch the curriculum is largely based on the existing course structures of DU and JMI.
For each semester, students currently have to deposit Rs. 5,000.
