Evaluating the Development of Middle Years Math Teaching and Learning Solutions

2018 - 2021

Project Overview


Mathematica provides technical assistance to Middle Years Math grantees and helps build their capacity to develop and execute measurement and evaluation plans. Continuous improvement and diversity, equity, and inclusion frameworks inform the measurement and evaluation work.

Project Motivation

As part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Solutions portfolio, this project seeks to dramatically improve middle years math instruction, so that all students who are Black, Latino, and/or experiencing poverty deeply know, are able to use, and enjoy math by the time they reach high school.

Partners in Progress

Grantees of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), Cignition, Crossroads, Imagine Learning, New Classrooms, Silicon Valley Education Foundation,, Saga Education, Teaching Systems Lab (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Teachley, The Calculus Project, Woot Math, youcubed (Stanford University)

Prepared For

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Mathematica is working in close partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and its grantees to systematically collect and synthesize evidence on solutions for math teaching and learning in grades 3 through 9. The evidence is being used to (1) inform grantees’ program development and improvement, and (2) generate evidence about the effectiveness of middle years math solutions in the portfolio.
