San Joaquin Valley Mathematics Project

San Joaquin Valley Mathematics Project

Since its inception in 1989, the San Joaquin Valley Mathematics Project (SJVMP) has provided a stimulating and supportive professional home for K-12 mathematics teachers and university faculty residing in the Central Valley of California. The SJVMP offers summer leadership institutes, winter leadership retreats, a free Friday evening speaker (with dinner) series, CGI workshops, and partnership opportunities with local districts, all designed to support PreK-12 teachers in becoming more knowledgeable and effective instructors of mathematics. SJVMP supports the early professional growth of preservice math teachers as well! Fresno State students are invited to participate in SJVMP-supported events, as well as Fresno State's Math Circle and Sonia Kovalevsky Day. Two recently-funded grants actively support the mission of the SJVMP: (a) NSF Noyce Track 3: "Mathematics Master Teacher Leaders" and (b) CSU Chancellor's Office: "Enhancing the Mathematics Content Knowledge of PreK-5 Teachers in the Central San Joaquin Valley."
