About the Project

The Core Math Partnership deepens teachers’ mathematical knowledge for teaching through study of mathematics learning progressions and high-leverage instructional practices in order to further student achievement and success in mathematics.

Lead partners include the School District of Cudahy, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Center for Mathematics and Science Education Research (CMSER) and the Departments of Mathematical Sciences and Teaching & Learning.

Goal 1

Deepen mathematical knowledge and understanding of content progressions aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

Goal 2

Strengthen instruction through the implementation of high-leverage teaching practices for mathematics.

Goal 3

Increase collaboration among teachers within and across schools in moving to common practice with the Common Core.
