The award is intended for individual classroom teachers or small groups of teachers collaborating in one grade or across grade levels. Proposals must address the following: the mathematics content as defined in the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics of NCTM; the plan for improving the achievement of targeted students; and the anticipated impact on students’ achievement.
