Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education
Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Education (BSME) is a six-week summer program in Budapest, Hungary, designed for American and Canadian undergraduates, recent graduates and in-service teachers interested in teaching middle school or high school mathematics.
BSME was conceived by the founders of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (BSM), and the two programs share a common goal: to provide their participants with an opportunity to experience the mathematical and general culture of Hungary. BSME is specifically intended for students who are not only passionate about mathematics, but also the teaching of mathematics.
Our academic program includes the following components:
- Five weeks living in Budapest taking mathematics education courses that focus on the Hungarian pedagogy.
- A one-week practicum that takes place in rural Hungary at a math camp for kids.
These are in-depth Q&A sessions with program leaders.
