Math in the Middle Institute Partnership Course Materials For Instructors This website provides access to materials for several courses developed as part of the Math in the Middle Institute Partnership (M2) at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. The materials include a description and a complete set of documents needed to offer the course. The focus of M2 is developing intellectual leaders among middle-level mathematics teachers (of grades 5-8), improving student achievement in math, and reducing the achievement gaps in the mathematical performance of diverse student populations in Nebraska. Thus the M2 curriculum is designed to build strong mathematics content knowledge and to study and practice the art of pedagogy. Anyone wishing to offer quality courses to mathematics educators (from upper elementary through high school teachers) for college credit or professional development may use and duplicate any of the materials (referencing the Math in the Middle Institute when appropriate).
