|Strengthening the system of professional education that supports teachers of mathematics throughout their careers. The Center for Proficiency in Teaching Mathematics (CPTM) worked with teacher educators from 2- and 4-year higher education institutions, mathematicians, professional developers, teacher leaders, and graduate students in mathematics education and mathematics to focus on two questions: What mathematical knowledge and skill is needed for effective teaching of mathematics? How can teachers develop and learn to use this knowledge and skill in their professional practice? Research and development activities spanned textbook analysis, record making with digital tools, mathematics content for teachers courses, Beyond Implementation: Focusing On Challenge And Learning (BI:FOCAL), Partnerships in Reform in Mathematics Education (PRIME), and Intermath. CPTM had study groups on mathematics methods planning, evaluation, social circles, and more. This Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), involved the University of Georgia and the University of Michigan.|
