Secretary's Summit on Mathematics
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center Amphitheatre
On February 6, 2003, at the Secretary's Mathematics Summit in Washington, D.C., the Department launched its Mathematics and Science Initiative. Its aim is to achieve three interdependent goals:
  • Engage the public in recognizing the need for better mathematics and science education for every child in our nation's schools.
  • Initiate a campaign to recruit, prepare, train, and retain teachers with strong backgrounds in mathematics and science.
  • Develop an academic research base to improve our knowledge of what boosts student learning in mathematics and science.
