The mission of our project is to improve student achievement and the teaching and learning mathematics by building a state-wide learning community of mathematics educators, mathematicians, and public leaders.
- Eight mathematicians
from NMSU and an additional mathematician from Western New Mexico
- Eleven Mathematics Educators
who are serving as field specialists and working continuously with
districts to facilitate implementation of the project .
- A three-person evaluation
team (educational researcher, statistics professor, and math educator)
and a graduate research assistant.
- Two multimedia web developers
who are developing a web-based knowledge environment for mathematics
teachers in the state.
Our focus is to
- Offer Summer academies connected to year-round professional development.
- Provide continuous professional development
- Build Capacity with school district partners
- Develop and support on-going collaboration with institutional partners
