Welcome, you are visiting Math TLC

Math TLC
The Mathematics Teacher Leadership Center (Math TLC) is a partnership between the University of Northern Colorado and its Core Partners, the University of Wyoming, Greeley School District #6 (CO), Morgan County School District (CO), Poudre County School District (CO), Laramie County School District 1 (WY), and Carbon County School District 1 (WY).

Math TLC is an integrated partnership to improve mathematics in middle, secondary and post secondary education in the north Rocky Mountains region. Key to this Teacher Institute project is working with teachers and districts to retain new and continuing teachers in the field and develop leadership capacity. The Partners will develop and implement a Master's degree in Secondary Mathematics, and a Teacher Leadership Program in mathematics for teachers, grades 4-12. Research is to be carried out on the impact of both these programs on student achievement.
