To strengthen the mathematical preparation of all students by supporting and expanding the community of teacher-practitioners at the pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate levels engaged in Learning by Inquiry by:

  • developing collaborative communities of teacher-practitioners
  • supporting the creation of teaching materials, resources, and pedagogical practices informed by mathematics education research
  • including teachers and students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds in mathematics in the practice of Learning by Inquiry
  • training graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in Learning by Inquiry methods
  • providing workshops and conferences focused on Learning by Inquiry practice and its assessment
