About the Project
Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership – Teacher Education Partnership Team (MTE- TEPT)
A Partnership with Association of Public and Land Grant Universities

Project Goals
The goal of this partnership is to provide a coordinated research, development, and implementation effort for secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs in order to meet the challenges of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and to embody research and best practices in the field.

Project Description
The MTE-Partnership is comprised of 38 teams across 30 states — including 69 universities, 87 school systems, 9 community colleges, and other interested institutions — working collaboratively to redesign secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs. NMSU has partnered with 3 other Higher Education Institutions to pilot a model for clinical experiences.
