Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP) Mission: To create a better understanding of the nature, beauty, and importance of mathematics and to promote effective teaching of mathematics. Our mission has expanded to include supporting science, technology, engineering, and the arts as they relate to mathematics.
