NSF Awards $2.8m Grant to Professors Ellis, Yopp-Edwards and Bonangue

Professors Ellis, Yopp-Edwards and BonangueThe National Science Foundation’s Division of Undergraduate Education has awarded an anticipated $2,833,981 for the Advancing Teachers of Mathematics to Advance Learning for All (ATMALA) project, led by: Mark Ellis, professor of secondary education; Ruth Yopp-Edwards, professor of elementary education; and Martin Bonsangue, professor of Mathematics. The project aims to strengthen mathematics teaching and learning for underserved students and communities in urban areas in and near Orange County — primarily focusing on middle school and early high school levels. Project ATMALA is a collaboration between CSUF, Anaheim Union High School District and National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. It will build on the success of the university’s previous the NSF-funded projects, Mathematics Teaching and Master Teaching Fellows (2010-2016) and Transforming Academic and Cultural Identidad through Bilteracy project (2013-2016).
