Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership - Phases I and II Research

The Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership (GBMP) began with a group of eight local teachers who had studied Piaget’s theory of how children learn. GBMP is now a partnership made up of Birmingham-Southern College (BSC), University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Mathematics Education Collaborative (MEC), and diverse local school districts in the Birmingham metropolitan area. We have consistently repeated evidence that students of high implementing teachers (100% of teachers at that grade level took at least one GBMP summer course, and RTOP scores at that grade level were at least 12.5 out of 20 points) score statistically significantly better on state mathematics tests and Balanced Assessments.
