The Mid-Atlantic Center for Mathematics Teaching and Learning (MAC-MTL) is a multi-site partnership through which the University of Delaware, the University of Maryland, The Pennsylvania State University, and three public school systems collaborate to work on three critical tasks in mathematics education:
- Conduct research on the development, application, and influence of teacher knowledge in K-12 mathematics.
- Develop models for the mathematical education of pre-service teachers and the professional development of in-service mathematics teachers.
- Design and operate collaborative programs of doctoral and postdoctoral studies that prepare future leaders for mathematics education.
Mid-Atlantic Center research, development, and teaching projects are funded by a continuing grant from the National Science Foundation Centers for Learning and Teaching program.
