Journal of Urban Mathematics Education


The Journal of Urban Mathematics Education (JUME) is a peer- reviewed, open-access, academic journal focused on research, pedagogy, and scholarship of mathematics in urban communities.

K-16 urban mathematics teachers and teacher educators are encouraged to tell their stories in the new Public Stories of Mathematics Educators section, reflecting on their pedagogical philosophies and practices, and their effects on opportunities to learn for the students they serve.

Manuscript submission guidelines for this and other sections are listed under Policies: Section Policies on this page:


National Girls Collaborative Project


The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) intends to bring together organizations throughout the United States that focus on encouraging girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The NGCP's stated goals are to:

  • maximize access to shared resources within projects and with public and private sector organizations and institutions interested in expanding girls' participation in STEM
  • strengthen capacity of existing and evolving projects by sharing promising practice research and program models, outcomes and products
  • use the leverage of a network or collaboration of individual girl-serving STEM programs to create the tipping point for gender equity in STEM

On the site, you can:

  • find out more about the NGCP
  • list your program in a national database
  • browse the database for other programs, or search for programs based on name, location, needs, etc.
  • apply for a mini-grant related to either informal learning or evaluation and assessment
  • read NGCP newsletters
  • find out about events related to encouraging girls in STEM

Tech Powered Math


Lucas Allen has begun this site designed to alert students, parents, and educators to new developments in technology for learning math and educate them on how to use those resources. The site is new, and content is continuously added in these areas:

  • video lessons incorporating technology
  • reviews and comparisons of popular classroom technology, primarily the TI-84 and TI-Nspire graphing calculators
  • lists of approved calculators and dates for the ACT and SAT tests
  • a discussion forum and FAQ
