The Math Center is a federally-funded National Research and Development Center, supported by the Institute for Education Sciences at the U.S. Department of Education.

A joint project of WestEd and its university partners, Carnegie Mellon University, Temple University, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the Math Center brings together leading experts in cognition, instruction, assessment, research design and measurement, mathematics education, and teacher professional development around the core goal of redesigning components of a widely-used middle school mathematics curriculum, Connected Mathematics Project (CMP).

The center aims to enhance the conditions of instruction and improve learning outcomes for students in important and challenging mathematics concepts and skills.
