Strong Start Math

The Strong Start Math Project is a three-year collaboration of the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In this project, MPS teachers of K5-Grade 3 participate as school-based teams with the goal of strengthening their mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical strategies. Building this cadre of teachers will ensure students in Kindergarten through Grade 3 begin their mathematics journey with a strong and robust mathematical foundation on a trajectory of success as learners of mathematics.
