Innovations Project to Improve Math in Preschool through Third Grade

This article in The Wall Street Journal highlights the Early Math Collaborative’s Innovations Project. This project offers training and coaching to preschool through third grade teachers in several public schools across Chicago.

The goal is to provide quality math instruction to children in these early grades. This might include blending math ideas into craft activities or story time.

The Innovations Project received a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation (i3) Fund, which was matched by funding from the CME Group Foundation.
