    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.

    Coursera is social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. We envision a future where the top universities are educating not only thousands of students, but millions. Our technology enables the best professors to teach tens or hundreds of thousands of students.

    Through this, we hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.
