Welcome, you are visiting MSTP Project

The MSTP Project: Mathematics Across the MST Curriculum is improving teaching and learning in middle-level mathematics in 10 school districts in New York.

Core and supporting partners will develop and implement a model for increasing the diversity of the teaching workforce; enhancing university faculty's understanding of middle school reform, learning standards, and assessments; increasing middle school mathematics, science, and technology teachers' understanding of mathematics content and pedagogy; and improving curriculum alignment among the mathematics, science, and technology disciplines. MSTP integrates three components:

  1. collaborative professional development for school-based and higher education faculty;
  2. curriculum revision and alignment; and
  3. recruitment of underrepresented minority undergraduates in mathematics, science, and engineering into teaching careers.
