Welcome to the Science Education Community


Our Community Members

The Mathematics Education Community in the CSU is a community of members-CSU faculty, K-12 Mathematics Teachers throughout California, K-12 Administrators, interested Legislators and of particular importance Preservice through Induction year mathematics teachers including undergraduate and credential students and those in their first three years of teaching mathematics.

Promoting the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The Mathematics Education Community in the CSU is based upon the concept of a “teaching commons” whereby the community of California’s K-12 Mathematics Teachers and university Mathematics Teacher Educators advance and promote the scholarship of teaching and learning mathematics through sharing of ideas, practices, and information, and resources.

Another CSU-MERLOT Partnership

California K-12 mathematics teachers and CSU faculty engaged in the training of future mathematics teachers can access high quality, peer reviewed teachable lessons and related online resources made available through the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) at www.merlot.org MERLOT provides K-12 Mathematics Teachers and university Mathematics Teacher Educators an opportunity to “publish” online, to develop comprehensive bookmark collections of valuable resources, and to make contributions to this growing digital library.

Students in the classroom.

Special Feature

The Khan Academy contains over 2,100 videos and 100 self-paced exercises and assessments, with the majority in mathematics, and others covering topics ranging from biology, chemistry, and physics to finance, and history. Areas covered in mathematics include arithmetic, algebra and geometry--including worked examples of problems), trigonometry, probability, statistics, pre-calculus, and calculus. California Standards Test (CST) questions and problem solutions are provided for Algebra and geometry, as are California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) example problems.
