Creating Mathematically Connected Communities
Our vision is to improve student achievement and the teaching and learning of K-12 mathematics by building a statewide learning community of mathematics educators, mathematicians, and public school leaders.

Mathematically Connected Communities (MC² ) is:

  • A partnership of educators including university mathematicians, district administrators and mathematics school teachers across the state of New Mexico
  • State and federally funded by New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) and Math-Science Partnership (MSP)

Mission: Develop a sustainable, statewide learning community of teachers, teacher leaders, and principals who are highly knowledgeable about the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) and effective instructional strategies that support all students' learning and achievement in mathematics.

Work Plan

  • Deepen teacher pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) for classroom teaching of the CCSS-M to reach all students including Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD), English Learners (EL), Students with Disabilities (SWD), and Gifted and Talented (GT)
  • Develop teacher leaders to build capacity in schools to provide and access high quality professional learning in mathematics.
  • Deepen school leadership capacity among principals, teacher leaders, and instructional coaches.
