The Metro Chicago Mathematics Initiative (MCMI) is a program of the Learning Sciences Research Institute (LSRI) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) that supports teachers and school districts in transforming their mathematics education practices through intensive professional development and coaching services.
Our work is driven by a focus on student learning. Drawing on decades of research and experience, we aim to change the way that mathematics is taught and learned in every classroom, for every student. We help teachers engage students deeply in mathematics by building their own mathematical knowledge and supporting their ability to use student thinking to inform their instruction. Learn more about Our Approach.
Partial funding for the initial work of MCMI was provided by a series of grants during 2009–2017 by the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust. That funding supported activities of the West Cook Mathematics Initiative and the South Cook Mathematics Initiative. We thank the Chicago Community Trust for their generous support of this work.
