Mathematics Advisory Group (MAG)

The establishment of the Mathematics Advisory Group in 2016 marked the evolution of TPSE Math from information-gathering activities toward a more action-oriented role. With the TPSE board, MAG members are leading the effort to carry out, scale up, and evaluate the effectiveness of major reforms.
