  • Research Projects

    • Making Mathematics Reasoning Explicit (MMRE) -- a 5-year, $5 million, NSF Math Science Partnership Grant (2011-2016) collaboration between Washington State University, University of Idaho, and a consortium of rural districts in eastern Washington and northern Idaho.  The goal is to develop teacher leaders in Grades 4-12 who promote mathematical reasoning, generalization, and justification in their classrooms, schools, and districts.
