San Diego Mathematics Project
Principal Investigator: Nadine Bezuk. Funded by: California Mathematics Project through the UC Regents.
The San Diego Mathematics Project (SDMP) is one of the sites of the California Mathematics Project, a California Subject Matter Project. It serves mathematics teachers in San Diego County. A major focus of the SDMP is to provide a comprehensive professional development program for teachers from predominantly low performing schools to help them implement the California Mathematics Content Standards. In support of that focus, it offers summer institutes with follow-up days during the academic year, along with a regular series of after-school “Math Talks for High School Teachers”, addressing similar goals. The SDMP sponsors special events and workshops to meet local needs, particularly those related to equity and second language learners. It partners with other mathematics professional development projects, the County Office of Education, and school districts to improve mathematics achievement in San Diego County.
