Math for America (MfA) is a non-profit organization devoted to improving secondary mathematics education in the United States by recruiting, training and retaining excellent teachers. The program began in New York City and has become a model for educational change across the country; there are now sites in San Diego, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and Boston, with many more partnerships forming in other cities in the near future. In 2013 Congress used MfA's New York site as the model for creating the National Science Foundation Teaching and Master Teaching Fellowships authorized through the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship program in the America COMPETES Act.
Math for America has sent Teaching Fellows and Master Teachers to PCMI since 2009. Math for America has also supported a number of Teach for America fellows to attend PCMI each year.
