Welcome, you are visiting MiSP 2

Math Infusion into Science Project Phase II
The primary mission of MiSP is to improve middle school student achievement in mathematics. The Project is rigorously developing, implementing, and researching an innovative and potentially transformative model that infuses mathematics into eighth-grade science education. Employing mathematical methods in science instruction would have great benefits both for mathematics and science. For mathematics, it would ensure that students see the mathematics they study actually being used, and would enhance their learning. The infused mathematics would also help transform the primarily descriptive instruction currently used in middle school science into more inferential and analytical instruction, and would therefore inform science understanding.
