PROM/SE is a comprehensive research and development effort to improve mathematics and science teaching and learning in grades K-16. Initiated in 2003, the project is funded through a $35 million partnership agreement from the National Science Foundation.
Phase II of the project started in 2008. Partners include Michigan State University and consortia of school districts in Michigan and Ohio:
- Calhoun County Intermediate School District, Michigan
- Ingham County Intermediate School District, Michigan
- SMART Consortium, greater Cleveland, Ohio area
PROM/SE Phase I partners from 2003-2008 also included:
- High AIMS consortia, greater Cincinnati, Ohio area
- St. Clair Regional Educational Services Agency, Michigan
The partnership's name is its goal: Promoting Rigorous Outcomes in Mathematics and Science Education. PROM/SE builds upon the foundations set by its individual partners, linking them together with some of the country's top mathematicians, scientists, and educational researchers at Michigan State University and other universities. Our aim is to create a powerful new approach to improving mathematics and science achievement for all students. PROM/SE is designed to help teachers and students meet new state and federal accountability standards while working with and within each schools particular situation.
