Grant Programs

PIMSER has received over $12.4 million in state and federal funding since its inception in 2005.

Making Mathematics Meaningful (M3)

PIMSER received a two-year grant through July 2023 from The Steele-Reese Foundation to increase student understanding of number computation/skills in middle school students who are at least one grade level below in that area. The project will involve collaboration between pre-service and in-service math teachers (Mentors) and PIMSER Master Teachers to learn appropriate math-specific instructional strategies and common na├»ve understanding students hold in number computation/skills and learn how to facilitate and plan for growth mindset dispositions in students. The Mentors will provide students in grades 6 and 7 ongoing, after school tutoring sessions in Spring 2022 and Spring 2023, using an intervention module created by PIMSER.
