Abstract: Online education at the graduate level has increased in recent years, offering students, instructors, and universities new challenges and opportunities for teaching and learning. The researchers in this study examine participant perceptions of a Master’s degree program in Mathematics designed for secondary mathematic teachers. During one spring semester, survey data were collected to identify what participants believed to be successful aspects of the graduate level mathematics online course as well as areas for improvement. Using survey data, areas of strengths and weaknesses are categorized, and recommendations to instructors are made to help support teaching and learning in online graduate teacher-education courses.
