Giving to RUSMP

The RUSMP approach is founded on the belief that sustained instructional changes can best be supported through the development of professionalism among teachers and the creation of a network of teachers.  

RUSMP's overarching goal is to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics. Over 10,000 teachers and over 6,000 students have benefited from RUSMP programs since 1987. Read more about RUSMP's impact here.
