2 History and Timeline Spring 2006 – First proposal for Regional Collaborative for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching – Dr. David Martin accepts position at SRSU, as university partners in Math Collaborative grant (also including Midland College) – Texas Tech and ESC 18 collaborate on first NSF MSP proposal (not funded)

3 History and Timeline – Math Collaborative funded by TRC for $200,000 – TTU and ESC 18 collaborate on South Plains Mathematics Scholars proposal to NSF (funded) – SRSU and ESC 18 collaborate on proposal for Year 2 of Regional Mathematics Collaborative 2007—2008 – Math Collaborative funded by TRC for $169,000

4 History and Timeline Spring 2008 – Dr. Gary Harris (TTU) suggests another try at NSF MSP grant – Feb. 26 meeting in Odessa, hosted by Harris ESC 18: Warren Koepp, Mujahid Ikram UTPB: Doug Hale, Juli Ratheal (joining UTPB 6/2008) SRSU: David Martin Angelo State: Paul Swets, Jana Barnard, Cathy Talley – Application submitted in March 2008

5 History and Timeline 2008—2009 – Math Collaborative Year 3 funded for $140,000 New focus on select group of “Math Teacher Mentors” UTPB and Midland College added as partners – NSF MSP proposal funded for $6.1 million 181 applicants, 28 funded, $43 million total budget Years 1-2: $2,058,536 With successful completion, subsequent funding – Year 3: $1,629,550 – Year 4: $1,202,714 – Year 5: $1,287,622

6 Future and Timeline 2008—2009 – Planning and development through December – Recruiting beginning late December/early January – Cohort 1 (20 at UTPB, 15 at SRSU) begins Summer 2009 with first graduate course, focused on numbers. Beyond – Subsequent courses developed based on teacher input and identified needs

7 Future and Timeline Participating teachers will receive up to nine hours of graduate credit, stipends totaling at least $9000, and travel and subsistence allowance to allow them to participate in the WTMSMP program. Each university will begin a second cohort of teachers in Year 3 Universities will incorporate materials developed into preservice teacher education

8 Future and Timeline ESCs will incorporate the teacher-experts from the WTMSMP into their services to school districts In Region 18 the teacher participants will be Mathematics Teacher Mentors in our Regional Mathematics Collaborative

9 Research Questions Effects of strengthening teacher content knowledge: – On student achievement – On teacher self-efficacy – Other topics as they emerge For further details, monitor the project website:
