NebraskaMATH Final Report 2015
Over the past six years, the $9.3 million NSF-funded NebraskaMATH grant has impacted more than 700 teacher leaders across the state. The "NebraskaMATH Final Report,” published in 2015, showcases the scope of the grant’s three core programs, Primarily Math, New Teacher Network and Nebraska Algebra, as well as the programs that grew from them. Funded by the National Science Foundation, NebraskaMATH thanks not only the NSF for its support, but also the many teachers who have taken our courses and have gone back into their classrooms dedicated to the young people of Nebraska. It’s been an inspiration to collaborate with all of you. Download a copy of the final report by clicking on the image of the report.
