This program is a research project designed to reinvent middle and high school mathematics. The program has two goals: to provide students with the mathematical foundations needed to succeed in high school and college, while introducing them to the kinds of habits of mind and mathematical thinking that will serve them well in any academic endeavor, and to establish a culture of excellence among the students - promoting the values of hard work, responsibility, and community. In-School Programs
In Fall 2010, the Detroit Edison Public School Academy – Early College of Excellence, a charter high school in Detroit, opened its doors with 100 ninth grade students. Wayne State University’s Center for Excellence and Equity in Mathematics (CEEM) was asked to build and operate the school’s mathematics program. CEEM provided its own instructors and its own curriculum. Within its program, CEEM implemented a philosophy and a set of principles and practices that had been developed in the WSU Math Corps. CEEM established four courses. The results of the first year are shown here: Fall Semester:
Note: The 23 ninth graders in Algebra 2 took the released 2005 ACT Math Exam at the end of the year. Their average score was a 20.1, approximately one point higher than this year’s state average for eleventh graders.
