Curriculum

Philosophy of curriculum and instruction, the RUSMP learning plan, and other curriculum resources are available here.

Web Adventures - Science and Health Games

As a service to the community, RUSMP is now hosting Web Adventures which was created by the Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL). In 1995, Rice University established CTTL to address the ways in which information technology can expand and enrich education on the Rice campus as well as in other settings. The mission of CTTL was to undertake research that makes technologies for learning more productive, accessible, and engaging, especially through the use of games in science and health education. 

Visual Arts Integration

RUSMP Director of Curriculum Integration, Robin Ward, encourages teachers and students to "Put on your math goggles!" as a means to see mathematics in the visual arts. Robin is a prolific writer and shares her ideas for math-art integration through articles in various mathematics education journals, books, and contributions to websites.

Mathematics Assessment Project: Assessing 21st Century Math

This project offers well-engineered tools for formative and summative assessment that expose students’ mathematical knowledge and reasoning, helping teachers guide them towards improvement and monitor progress. The tools are relevant to any curriculum that seeks to deepen students' understand.

Engage NY

As part of Race to the Top federal funding, the New York State Education Department worked with various partners to develop curriculum materials for grades Pre-K to 12 in both Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA), and these materials are available for download from EngageNY. 

Revised TEKS: Teacher-Created Document

Mathematics teachers who participated in Rice University School Mathematics Project's 2014 Spring Networking Conference on February 1 provided material for this wonderful resource for K-12 Texas mathematics teachers. Attendees identified mathematical terms new to their grade level in the revised TEKS.
