MISTM - Maine's Impact Study of Technology in Mathematics Maine's Impact Study of Technology in Mathematics (MISTM) was a federally funded collaboration among the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) through the Maine Department of Education (DOE), Maine Education Policy Research Institute (MEPRI) and Education Development Center (EDC) in Newton, MA designed to examine the influence of a technology-infused professional development program for 7th and 8th grade mathematics teachers on the mathematics achievement of rural middle school students in technology-rich classrooms. The core goal of the professional development program was to enable grade 7 and 8 teachers and their students in low-performing rural schools to take full advantage of universal laptop availability to enhance mathematics teaching and learning and improve student achievement in mathematics. The primary standards and indicators that were targeted in the intervention were from Cluster 1 and 3 of the Maine Learning Results. These were:

Algebra The word "algebra" is a distortion of the Arabic title of a treatise by al-Khwārizmī about algebraic methods. In modern usage, algebra has several meanings. One use of the word "algebra" is the abstract study of number systems and operations within them, including such advanced topics as groups, rings, invariant theory, and cohomology. This is the meaning mathematicians associate with the word "algebra."
