REvitalizing ALgebra: The REAL
The REAL partnership will address serious problems in the current
teaching of algebra, particularly with respect to performance by
underrepresented groups. The partners propose to pilot a model for a
professional development system that brings together three groups:
algebra teachers in grades 8-10, university mathematics majors, and
mathematics graduate students who are teaching remedial courses at the
university level. Each cohort will take part in a two-year
program. During the NSF MSP grant period, there will be two cohorts.
