Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership

image for project Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership The Greater Birmingham Mathematics Partnership (GBMP) is fundamentally targeting the improvement of middle school mathematics, with implications for both future and current teachers, and with a secondary focus on high school teachers of mathematics. The core partners include the lead organization, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, as well as Birmingham-Southern College and nine Greater Birmingham Alabama school districts: Bessemer City, Fairfield City, Homewood City, Hoover City, Jefferson County, Mountain Brook City, Shelby County, Trussville City, and Vestavia City School Systems. A significant supporting partner is the Mathematics Education Collaborative (MEC) of the State of Washington.

The overarching goal of the GBMP is to significantly improve the mathematics achievement of approximately 22,000 students in grades 6-8, while narrowing the mathematics achievement gaps among varied populations of students.
