Welcome to the Science Education Community

Our Community Members

The CSU Math Education Partnership (CSU-MTEP) Community is a community for CSU mathematics and mathematics education faculty and K-12 and community college educators participating in reforms preparing future secondary teachers for the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M). They are together working to move forward California’s high school and middle school implementation of the CCSS-M, striving to have local implementation reflect the gold standard in preparing new teachers for the math standards that has been established by the Association of Public Land Grant Universities (APLU) in its Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership.

All 22 CSU campuses that prepare teachers are members of the CSU-MTEP. Participating in it enables them to work with colleagues in the CSU system and nationally exploring strategies for preparing teacher candidates who are proficient in both the content and practice standards of the CCSS-M.

Promoting the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The CSU Math Teacher Education Partnership (CSU-MTEP) Community is based upon the concept of a “teaching commons” whereby the community of CSU math, math education, P-12, and community college faculty advance preparation of future secondary teachers for the CCSS-M through sharing of ideas, practices, information, and resources.

Another CSU-MERLOT Partnership

CSU faculty engaged in preparation and professional development for elementary and secondary teachers can share high quality resources and make them available through this web site and through the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT). MERLOT provides CSU faculty and partners an opportunity to "publish" online, to develop comprehensive personal collections of valuable resources, and to make contributions to this growing digital library.

Help Build Our Library

This site is available thanks to the hard work of educators throughout the CSU and our many partners. Click hereto learn how to contribute materials on a broad range of topics to its parent library, MERLOT.
