4 Sunflower blank Math and Science Partnership (MSP) Program A Research and Development Effort

5 Sunflower blank  A research & development (R & D) effort at NSF for building capacity and integrating the work of higher education with that of K-12 to strengthen and reform mathematics and science education  Seeks to improve student outcomes in mathematics and science for all students, at all K-12 levels

6 Sunflower blank What distinguishes NSF’s MSP Program from prior efforts?  Substantial intellectual engagement of mathematicians, scientists and engineers (STEM disciplinary faculty) from higher education in improving K-12 student outcomes in mathematics and the sciences  Breadth and depth of Partnerships – Partnerships between organizations, rather than among individuals only

7 Sunflower blank What distinguishes NSF’s MSP Program from prior efforts?  Organizational/institutional change driven by Partnerships  Degree to which MSP work is integrated with evidence; degree to which the work of the Partnerships is itself the work of scholars who seek evidence for what they do

8 Sunflower blank “Unless we are willing to apply the same rigorous standards of scholarship to issues related to learning and teaching that we regularly apply to more traditional research, the present situation in …education is unlikely to change.” Lillian McDermott APS News 7 (1) 1998

9 Sunflower blank Through the Math and Science Partnership program, NSF awards competitive, merit- based grants to teams composed of institutions of higher education, local K-12 school systems and supporting partners. At their core, Partnerships contain at least one institution of higher education and one K-12 school system.

10 Sunflower blank Key Features  Partnership-driven, with significant engagement of faculty in mathematics, the sciences, and engineering  Teacher quality, quantity, and diversity  Challenging courses and curricula  Evidence-based design and outcomes  Institutional change and sustainability

11 Sunflower blank 89 Funded Projects  12 Comprehensive Partnerships (FY 2002, FY 2003)  28 Targeted Partnerships (FY 2002, FY 2003, FY 2004)  12 Institute Partnerships (Prototype Award in FY 2003, FY 2004, FY 2006)  37 RETA projects (Design Awards in FY 2002, FY 2003, FY 2004, FY 2006, FY 2007)
