    The vision of the Math Common Core Institute is to enable grades 3-8 teachers to reach for excellence in elementary and middle school math through hands-on, standards-based, project-based, and technology-based (HSPT) learning environments. The project will deliver high-quality and research-based professional development to increase content knowledge in the Common Core State Standards for Math (CCSSM). This project represents a partnership among faculty and STEM education faculty at ETSU and fifty grade 3-8 math teachers from eight school districts. The project will provide a total of 106 hours of HSPT-based professional development (PD) by sponsoring three spring and fall workshops (18 hours) one summer institute (48 hours) homework assignments (24 hours) on-site training (12 hours) and two school visits (4 hours). Also, an online platform will be provided to facilitate the PD sessions during the project period and beyond.

    The Implementing Mathematical Practices and Content into Teaching Project (IMPACT) aims to support mathematics teachers in grades three through six as they transition towards meeting the expectations of the Common Core State standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). Fifty elementary teachers across four school districts will be recruited for participation. Project IMPACT has as its primary goal to increase and deepen participants’ comntent knowledgeand enhance their instructional practices. Achievement of these goals is expected as a direct result of a combination of immersion and practice-based experiences as well as carefully designed demonstration lessons. Projects activities include two Saturday meetings, four demonstration lessons, and a ten-day summer institute. Content development will focus on Geometry and Measurement, and enhancement of instructional practices will focus on the Standards for Mathematical Practice. A comprehensive evaluation plan and research plan will document the impact of the project.

    Lipscomb proposes a one-year project that will build on its previous MSP grant in which the university has worked in close partnership with Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS), Sumner County Schools, Robertson County Schools, Lebanon Independent Schools, and Maury Country Schools. The previous grant was a research grant that served teachers in partner districts for three years. The new project will conduct two institutes in the summer of 2013, collect data from a control group, and conduct appropriate follow-up on the participants to determine the extent of retention of the subject knowledge and the impact of the delivery model in participants' classrooms. All three sets of data will be used to evaluate the success of this research study.
