Our offerings engage learners as active participants in developing conceptual understanding and fluency, enabling them to become confident mathematical thinkers.
Our Elementary Mathematics Programs
Fifty years ago, three math educators came together to explore effective ways of teaching and learning math. They began with a grant from the National Science Foundation and a shared vision of making math accessible to all learners. They formed The Math Learning Center (MLC) as a nonprofit organization so they could continue to serve the math education community.
Co-founder and mathematics professor Dr. Eugene Maier pioneered the use of visual models, many of which are now widely used throughout math education. These models remain central to our approach, as does his belief in asking questions to move learning forward.
In the spirit of our founders, our programs are inquiry-based, student-centered, and focused on developing mathematical reasoning. Learn more about us.
