MSP projects will raise achievement of K-12 students in mathematics and science by:

**Stimulating partnerships** among K-12 teachers and administrators, and higher education mathematics, science and engineering faculty; Ensuring that K-12 students are prepared for, have access to, and participate and succeed in challenging mathematics and science courses;
**Increasing the number, quality and diversity of K-12 teachers** of mathematics and science;
**Making evidence-based contributions to the MSP Learning Network** and the learning and teaching knowledge base so research findings and successful strategies can be broadly disseminated to improve educational practice; and
**Stimulating well-documented, inclusive and coordinated institutional change** in both colleges and universities, and in local school districts to support improved student outcomes in mathematics and science.
