About the Mathematics Coaching Program
The Mathematics Coaching Program (MCP) is currently working with over 50 schools across Ohio, most of which are mathematically low-performing urban and rural schools and is funded from multiple sources with additional sources pending. The initial and primary funder is the Ohio Department of Education. ODE funding is awarded with the understanding that the MCP will follow research-based guidelines for effective professional development and instruction and base program content and instruction on state and national mathematics standards.
The MCP, centered at The Ohio State University, is a professional development intervention implemented on-site in schools. The program pursues multiple objectives in those schools:
1. improving student achievement;
2. strengthening teacher and coach mathematics content knowledge; and
3. strengthening teacher and coach knowledge in mathematics pedagogy.
