Student-Centered Instruction

Our network is working collaboratively to promote and deepen three types of student-centered learning opportunities: Connect, Justify, and Solve.


Make connections among mathematical procedures, concepts, and application to real-world contexts, where appropriate.


Communicate and justify mathematical thinking as well as critique the reasoning of others.


Make sense of and solve challenging problems that extend beyond rote application of procedures.

Informed by Research

These three aspects of student engagement are informed by research, including a mixed methods study of high school math teachers conducted by BMTN researchers.
