**Parent Resources**

On the Parent Resources for Mathematics page 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.
