  • Connected Mathematics Project and Curriculum

    Description:

    The Connected Mathematics Project (CMP) is a complete mathematics curriculum for middle school teachers and students. It helps students and teachers develop an understanding of important mathematical concepts, skills, procedures, and ways of thinking and reasoning, in number, geometry, measurement, algebra, probability and statistics. CMP is based on research, and was field-tested in diverse sites across the country with approximately 45,000 students and 390 teachers. A growing body of research and evaluation reports indicates that CMP outperforms non-CMP curricula on tests of problem-solving ability, equals or outperforms non-CMP curricula on skills tests, and promotes long term retention.

  • National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory

    Location:

    1 Cyclotron, 640 S. Shaw Lane, East Lansing, MI, 48824.

    Description:

    MSU's National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) is a national user facility devoted to basic research in nuclear science as well as accelerator and instrumentation research and development. Historically, the NSCL has played a key role in the scientific and technical education of a large number of young scientists and engineers in undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral programs. The NSCL plays an important role in pre-college and community education with programs such as a summer intern program for middle and high school teachers and guided tours of the facility to interested groups. The NSCL also has a number of research activities including research of nuclear structure and reactions; nuclear astrophysics; the Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA) Project; and accelerator design and beam physics.
