The Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (MTE-Partnership), which works to improve the quantity and quality of new secondary mathematics teachers, has published a monograph summarizing the first eight years of its work. APLU formed the MTE-Partnership in 2012 in response to the critical need for improved preparation of secondary mathematics teachers who are ready to help their students meet more rigorous mathematics standards that were emerging.
Over the following years, over 200 mathematicians and mathematics educators from colleges and universities across the nation, along with their K-12 partners, have worked to improve the quantity and quality of new secondary mathematics teachers following the Networked Improvement Community design promoted by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The monograph summarizes the project’s work, including five research action clusters addressing key issues such as effective content preparation, clinical experiences, recruitment, and induction into the field.
