The Poincaré Institute brings together faculty and researchers with expertise in the fields of mathematics, education, and physics. Nine school districts across three states bring a wealth of practicing professionals to the project. A strong group of staff, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students support the Institute with experience and knowledge in the areas of technology, research, mathematics, and mathematics education.
This diverse and talented team shares a commitment to improving mathematics education through a focus on the middle-school years and unifying mathematical concepts through a deeper understanding of algebra and functions.
