|Education Development Center, Inc.|
|The goal of Making Mathematics is to provide high school students and teachers with the materials and mentorship necessary for engaging in a mathematical research experience. Prior to the start of research investigations, students are paired with a mathematician who serves as their mentor. Via regular email exchanges throughout the research process, the mentors serve as distance learning guides for both teachers and students. Students gather data, investigate patterns, form hypotheses, and analyze conjectures to work toward their final result. Students then share their results with others and pose - and perhaps solve - new questions inspired by this work. Apply online; read introductions and program descriptions available for students, teachers, mentors, and parents; see research projects, completed student work, and more.|
