## A Mathematician- Mathematics Educator Partnership to Teach Teachers

### Abstract

"The key to improving K-12 mathematics education is to build teachers' mathematical and pedagogical knowledge, and the need is not limited to the context of preparing future elementary teachers. Many current K-12 teachers have similar needs. The separate expertise of a mathematician and a mathematics educator, joined in a successful partnership, is the right foundation to support this kind of work. At Nebraska, our partnership has resulted in two large NSF grants for Math Science Partnerships (MSP), Math in the Middle Institute Partnership and NebraskaMATH."
