NSF grant to improve middle school math


"The National Science Foundation, through the Mathematics Science Partnership grant program, has awarded $9.9 million to the Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership (GBMP) to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics in local middle schools.

"This is a tremendous boost for our local middle-school teachers and the young students they educate," said Bernadette Mullins, associate professor of mathematics at BSC and principal investigator. ...

The partnership is a multi-dimensional program that will provide high-quality professional development to all middle-school teachers in the eight districts, select pre-service teachers, some elementary school teachers, and higher-education professors.

The cornerstone of the professional development will be a series of two-week, in-depth mathematics content courses to be offered in the summer that model best-practice teaching methods." ...
