The Curtis Center for Mathematics and Teaching uniquely employs the skills of both K-12 and university mathematics instruction to provide an increasing number of U.S. students access to an internationally, bench-marked, world-class mathematics education.

 

We create, disseminate, and apply the knowledge of K-12 mathematics, mathematics teaching, and mathematics assessment to engage students in rigorous and engaging mathematics, pursuing the conceptual understanding required to engage students in rigorous and engaging mathematics while pursuing conceptual understanding, fluency and authentic, culturally-relevant application with equal intensity.

 

Our work includes:

  • Providing opportunities for K-12 mathematics faculty to grow their knowledge of mathematics and apply it to the work of teaching.

  • Training undergraduates for careers in K-12 mathematics and teacher leadership.

  • Developing mathematics curriculum and assessments that engage students in creative reasoning and meaningful application of mathematics.

  • Training district and school site administrators for mathematics instructional leadership.

The University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) Curtis Center for Mathematics and Teaching will create a mentorship program to motivate students at the Barack Obama Global Preparation Academy (BOGPA) to improve their performance in mathematics by positioning students on small research teams investigating a mathematics problem arising in the environmental science of their community, human biology or aerospace engineering, with mentorship by UCLA and SpaceX BlackX mathematicians of color.
