The California Mathematics Project (CMP) is a K-16 network dedicated to providing students a rich, rigorous, and coherent mathematics curriculum taught by competent and confident mathematics teachers who foster ALL students’ proficiency in mathematics—achieving equity in quality. CMP enhances teachers’ mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge that is aligned to the California Mathematics Standards and Framework. ALL teachers and students become competent mathematical thinkers as they investigate, conjecture, and justify.

California mathematics project mission statement

I have worked with the California Mathematics Project since late 2018. I served as a co-Director of the California Mathematics Project at Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) during the 2019-2020 academic year, and shifted to a Director role as of the Fall of 2020.

Our project focuses primarily on providing professional development opportunities to K-12 mathematics teachers in our geographic region, including Pomona, Ontario-Montclair, Chino, Upland… all the way to Palm Springs! We focus significantly on the ways in which we can incorporate cultural and linguistic relevance for students, the interweaving of social justice topics into mathematics, and more general equitable teaching practices for mathematics. A secondary focus is also the experiencing of fun mathematics learning through Math Teacher Circles.
