We are dedicated to improving the quality of
K-12 Mathematics in Washington State Schools

We believe that:

  • All students should receive the best possible mathematics education, regardless of their socioeconomic status or ethnicity.
  • Mathematics education should prepare students for productive citizenship, further studies, and satisfying, productive work.
  • It is possible for people to agree on all of these goals and still hold widely differing opinions about how to achieve them.

We value educational research, participate in conducting research, and are dedicated to navigating the complexities of human learning.
