Math for America | For Master Teachers of Math and Science

Take a peek at Math for America (MƒA) below. 

MƒA was founded in 2004 as an organization committed to teachers. 

MfA master teachers are changing the very landscape of mathematics and science teaching and learning in this country. It's a model that works—for teachers, for schools, and for students.

MƒA was founded in New York City by Jim Simons, Founder and Chairman of Renaissance Technologies. Dr. Simons also serves as the current Chair of the Board for MƒA. Jim and Marilyn Simons created the Simons Foundation, which provides a substantial portion of the funding for MƒA.

In our country today, we don’t do enough to encourage extraordinary teachers to stay in the classroom and we don’t do enough to value teachers and teaching as a profession. We know we need to work harder to make teaching a viable, rewarding, and respected career choice for the best minds in science and mathematics. Above all, MƒA works to change the way we talk about teachers and teaching.
