The Using Mathematical Practices to Understand Content (UMPUC) project is funded by a Title IIB Math and Science Partnership grant.  Mathematics and education faculty from Newman University have partnered with educators of grades 3 through 5 from the Wichita and Haysville public schools, and grades 3 through 6 from the Wichita diocese schools.  The partnership aims to provide a forum for collaborative professional learning during the transition to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM).
