|MetroMath "finds research-based ways to ensure that urban children learn the mathematics they need; that urban mathematics teachers are equipped with the most effective instructional strategies; and that the human resources of urban communities are used effectively to help children learn." Watch presentations from the "Center for Mathematics in America's Cities," or read its studies: "Community-to-School Mathematics"; "The Role of Caregivers in Supporting Conceptually Challenging Mathematics Learning"; "Affect and Motivation"; "Policy Approaches to Recruitment and Retention"; and more. One of thirteen Centers for Learning and Teaching (CLT) that have been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), MetroMath is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary effort involving faculty from Rutgers University, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and the University of Pennsylvania with expertise in mathematics, urban education, mathematics education, cognitive science, urban studies, psychology, and educational policy. Participating school districts include New York City, Philadelphia, Newark, and Plainfield, New Jersey.|
