Our Work

Programs at the Center for Science and Mathematics Education (CSME) are designed to support the implementation of high quality science and mathematics instruction in schools. Program supports operate at many stakeholder levels: district, school, teacher and student, and are aligned with our vision of science and mathematics education.

All students have both the right and the need to learn science and mathematics. We are at a critical juncture in the fields of science and mathematics education.  New guidance for what students need to understand and be able to do in these fields by the end of high school is clearly articulated by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M).  Stakeholders are in need of multi-faceted supports that will help them implement these more challenging standards, and CSME’s collaborative programs provide these.
