Clayton State Receives Mathematics and Science Partnership Grant Award
Clayton State University has received a Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) grant award from the Georgia Department of Education.
This is the University's third year receiving this award. For this award, faculty from the mathematics and science departments will partner with the Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) at the Georgia Institute of Technology, to provide a professional development for a cohort of Clayton County Public Schools middle and high school mathematics and science teachers to enhance their content knowledge, pedagogical skills, instructional practices and ability to analyze student thinking in order to increase the academic performance of their students.
Dr. Yvette Gardner has managed this project for the past two years and was very instrumental in expanding the program to include Georgia Tech and securing a large grant award. Fellow professors Tamara Pearson and Kelli Nipper were also involved in this effort.
