Every mathematics teacher deserves access to high-quality learning opportunities.
The North Carolina Collaborative for Mathematics Learning (NC2ML) is a statewide partnership committed to supporting mathematics teachers and leaders across NC. We envision classrooms where teachers are supporting students in developing the mathematical understanding and skills needed to engage in today’s world; an appreciation of the power of math; and their own ability to solve problems through active engagement in the subject. To help make this vision a reality, NC2ML leverages and supports mathematics educators across NC by helping them deepen their understanding of mathematics content as well as the pedagogical skills needed to advance students’ mathematics competency.
Leverage a network of support
North Carolina is a national leader in the area of math education. We know NC math students are in good hands — your hands. To support you in your work, NC2ML aims to provide math teachers across NC with tools they can use to develop enthusiastic math learners: a network of support, the ability to share and leverage each other’s best practices, and a voice in the future of math education.

Create the kind of classroom you’ve always wanted
Let’s challenge the belief that math is about tricks and memorization; math should make sense for students and have tangible applications to both their current and future lives. By collaborating with NC math teachers and leaders, we’re able to offer co-designed resources for fostering a math classroom that features collaboration, thoughtful dialogue, and exciting light bulb moments for a deeper, more relevant mathematics learning experience for students.
Put an end to the "I'm not a math person" mindset
Math is for everyone. Regardless of a students’ past math experience, we believe that in the hands of dedicated and resourced math teachers, ALL students can see themselves as mathematicians. By leveraging multiple strategies and students’ intuitive mathematical thinking, we believe that all students can develop proficiency along with a strong conceptual understanding of math and its application in their own lives.
Prepare students not only for the next class, but for college, the workforce and the world
The world is complex and dynamic, so the way we educate should reflect this reality. NC2ML provides resources and support to help you collaborate with your colleagues and design learning experiences in which students develop the analytical, critical thinking, and group collaboration skills needed to engage in today’s workforce and make a positive impact on society.
