Our Mission

Our main goal is to inspire, educate and empower teachers of mathematics, transforming the latest research on math into accessible and practical forms. We know from research how to teach math well and how to bring about high levels of student engagement and achievement but research has not previously been made accessible to teachers.

I really enjoyed today’s lesson! It was fun and I’m starting to like patterns more because of today. I never knew about this so it was cool to learn something new! Student
This was a really fun activity that I could do all day. Student
I really liked this lesson because there were so many patterns and so much freedom. Student
I really liked this lesson because there were so many patterns and so much freedom. Student
I liked the activity because it stretched my thinking and my understanding of math. Student
I really liked how it made my brain work hard to find the answer that I felt was always sitting there, an inch away from my grasp. Student
I enjoyed the activity because it was challenging but very thrilling. Student
It was fun because in your typical math class, you just do classwork from a book but today we got to do something interactive and fun. Student
I really liked this activity because it made my mind think out of its limits. Student
I enjoyed the group work discussion. I think if we did it all at the beginning of the year, we would be more aware of how we act towards our classmates in group work. Student
I thought the activity was fun because it was very different from what we normally do in math, and we had to think about arithmetic in different ways. Student
These people know what they are talking about. The lessons are great and fun. They are interactive. Student
…Throughout my schooling years, I had enough experiences with math that I was left feeling stupid and incapable of doing it…
I cannot tell you the relief I now have that I can learn math myself, and I can teach students that they can too…
Middle School Teacher
…You have taught me to look at math as an art and to teach it as such… Sincerely, a dedicated teacher
…I never realized how math could be made so interesting besides the way it is usually taught… I will approach teaching math in a whole new light… I feel empowered and motivated to change how I teach this school year. You have taught me to look at math as an art and to teach it as such. Donna Young
… As a homeschooling mom, I’m always looking for new opportunities to become a better teacher and this class has revolutionized the way I think about (and therefore teach) math. You have opened my eyes to the research behind things such as the negative effects of over-testing and “drill and kill” methods that I sensed intuitively were detrimental… Nichole Middleton
…I was searching for a process of learning math that would change the attitude of students from dislike to enjoy… this was the change I needed… Deb Crane
…It’s like an answer to my dreams of math teaching and learning… Elisa
…Thank you so much for this wonderful way to allow this information about these new reasons and methods to be spread to so many people (teachers, parents, etc.) at once… Carmel
…As I plunge into another year of teaching second grade, I intend to hold the torch high that you have lit… BUSD
