This grant supports and encourages classroom-based research in pre-college mathematics education in collaboration with college or university mathematics educators. For 2007-2008, grants with a maximum of $8,000 each will be awarded to full-time K-12 teachers currently teaching mathematics. The research must be a collaborative effort involving a college or university mathematics educator (a mathematics education researcher or a teacher of mathematics learning, teaching, or curriculum) and one or more K-12 classroom teachers. The proposal may include, but is not restricted to, research on the following topics: curriculum development and implementation, involvement of at-risk or minority students, students’ thinking about a particular mathematics concept or set of concepts, connection of mathematics to other disciplines, applications of technology to the learning of mathematics (any acquisition of equipment must support the proposed plan but not be the primary focus of the grant), and innovative assessment or evaluation strategies.
