A focus on student learning drives our work. We build teachers’ knowledge of mathematics, and their ability to use student thinking to inform their instruction, and then help them put this knowledge into practice to engage students deeply in important mathematics.
We aim to change the way that mathematics is taught and learned in every classroom, for every student. By building teachers’ knowledge, and their capacity to put it into practice, we help districts achieve sustainable mathematics improvement and prepare mathematically proficient students.
