Mathematically Connected Communities (MC² ) is:

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

Vision: 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.

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.

Goal: The goal of Mathematically Connected Communities (MC²) is to improve the mathematics learning for students in grades K-12 through professional learning experiences that

  1. Build teacher mathematics knowledge and pedagogical skills for effective teaching and
  2. Promote district capacity for creating support systems and structures for educator
    ongoing, job-embedded professional learning.
