##### Mathematics Design Collaborative

The Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC) brings together
effective mathematics teaching and high-quality instructional materials with
professional support along with student and teacher reflection. MDC instructional
tools are designed to deepen students' understanding of mathematical concepts
and develop their ability to apply that knowledge to non-routine problems. MDC
utilizes the structure of "formative assessment lessons" or classroom
challenges found at the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) Mathematics
Assessment Project to drive effective instruction. These lessons are based
heavily on the work of Dylan Wiliam’s 5
Key Strategies for Formative Assessment. By focusing on student work, these
lessons provide opportunities for students to demonstrate proficiency of the
content standards and the standards for mathematical practice.
Kentucky is a participating state in the Mathematics Design
Collaborative and as such has included the MDC work as a strategy in the Novice
Reduction for Gap Closure – Instruction action plan (MDC).

Access grades
6-12 lessons along with additional resources to support MDC.

Access grades K-5 lessons. (All Kentucky-created,
field-tested elementary lessons are posted on this page. We look forward to
posting the next wave of Alpha version eFALs soon – October.)

##### Parent Resources

Parent Resources for Mathematicspage you will find links to resources created by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, National PTA and the Council of the Great City Schools. These resources provide parents with a roadmap to understanding the math standards along with ideas for supporting student learning.

**Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM**) was established by the Kentucky General Assembly in 2006 to support diverse teacher and student populations across the Commonwealth. The mission of the Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM) is to advance the knowledge and practice of effective mathematics teaching and learning encompassing early childhood through adult education. The KCM provides statewide leadership, facilitates professional learning experiences, and cultivates innovation with the goal of improving mathematics education, practice and policy. The KCM is grounded in research, centered on practice, and focused on learners.**Kentucky Committee for Mathematics Achievement (CMA)**is a legislatively-created committee whose purpose is to develop a multifaceted strategic plan to improve student achievement in mathematics at all levels of schooling, pre-kindergarten through postsecondary and adult education.

##### Competitive Math Grants

The Mathematics Achievement Fund (MAF) grant provides schools with funds for teacher training (otherwise not provided by the KCM) and implementation of mathematics diagnostic assessment and intervention services and program(s) that address the needs of students in the primary program who are struggling with mathematics.

The Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) program is intended to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics and science by enhancing the content knowledge and teaching skills of classroom teachers.

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th-grade mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States.
