Mathematics Education Collaborative (MEC)

This web site should be better known and more used than it is because it uniquely provides important information about mathematics education that can help all educational stakeholders—teachers, administrators, parents, and the public.

Under the able direction of Ruth Parker, the Mathematics Education Collaborative (MEC) is an organization based in Washington State that provides educational communities throughout the United States with support to accomplish the goal of improved mathematics instruction for all. Specialities of MEC are the inclusion of parents and the full school community in any effort by a school district to improve mathematics education.

This website provides up-to-date information about MEC's activities, which includes links to libraries of interesting articles, research activities, quality mathematics education resources, special MEC materials, useful web sites, MEC conferences, and special professional development classes taught by MEC staff.
