EDC’s Mathematical Practices Institute (MPI) offers teacher professional development, curriculum support, and technical assistance for schools and districts across the country. Through its programs, MPI provides opportunities and tools for teachers and school administrators to effectively implement the Common Core State Standards for mathematical practice.
MPI professional development offers ways to teach “bread-and-butter” mathematics topics such as factoring, graphing lines, and solving word problems while supporting the larger goals of school mathematics.
With this blog, we hope to join the positive conversations happening online around mathematics and education, to listen to others’ ideas, and to share our own.
EDC has also authored an elementary program called ThinkMath, published by School Specialty, and a high school program called CME Project, published by Pearson. Some examples on this blog will come from these curricula, but the intent of MPI and this blog is to help teachers regardless of their curriculum or grade level.
