Welcome to the Toolkit -
Resources for Leaders in Mathematics Education

Click here to see who we are

Change is made by people - but people are more effective when they have well-engineered tools that suit their purposes.

This toolkit is designed to support leaders of systematic improvement in K-12 mathematics education.

Are there obstacles? Of course. Leaders face challenges  in terms of district organization, professional development, narrow tests, students' mathematical learning, and more.

The MARS team has asked teacher leaders, mathematics specialists, district superintendents, curriculum and assessment developers, evaluators, and researchers to identify the strategies  and tools  they have used to deal with their challenges.

This site offers a growing collection of resources to help leaders provide high quality mathematics instruction to all students, and do well on measures of adequate yearly progress.

How does this toolkit work? Click here for an overview of how this website is organized. You'll see how to identify challenges you face, find ways to think about them, hear stories from others, and get access to tools that are useful for dealing with them.

If you have suggestions to share with us (including challenges, strategies, and tools we might add to the site) please click here.
