Bridging the Gap: Building Productive Collaborations between High Schools and Universities

Project Overview

This project will pair TCU undergraduate mathematics education majors with mathematics teachers from an area high school with the goal of developing a model of productive collaboration between the two parties. As a pilot for a larger program, the project will combine practical experience (for undergraduate assistants) with data gathering (for investigators) and a viewpoint on current research (for teachers). A uniquely responsive feedback loop, in which teacher needs will be assessed promptly and continuously, will be established so that all participants can collaboratively adapt and respond as the situation demands.
