Description: The Institute for Mathematics and Education (IM&E) supports local, national, and international projects in mathematics education that "focus on both the mathematics and the students, can be applied to current needs, build on existing knowledge, and are grounded in the work of educators." IM&E programs include the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), the Arizona Teacher Initiative, BioMath Circle, G-TEAMS (which pairs University of Arizona graduate students with mathematics K-12 teachers and their students), Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (conducting research into the mathematical and pedagogical knowledge necessary for teaching secondary school), Mathematicians in Mathematics Education (MIME), and Progressions Documents for the Common Core Math Standards. See also IM&E's freely downloadable publications, such as Al Cuoco's "Mathematicians Working with Teachers"; Guershon Harel's The Necessity Principle and Its Implementation in Mathematics Instruction"; and Mark Saul's "Learning From Each Other."Learning From Each Other. IM&E operates out of the University of Arizona, with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and The Brookhill Foundation.
