New Mexico Project 2012 at a Glance
New Mexico Project 2012 is a plan for transformational change in K12 math and science education in our State. Its goal is that within 5 years our
students will be among the nation's leaders in math and science achievement. For this to occur we must:
 Provide much better preparation in math and science content for newlygraduating teachers.
 Increase significantly the number of math and science teachers in our high schools.
 Increase and strengthen the annual professional development provided to all math and science teachers.
 Adopt statewide K12 math and science instructional materials that use problemsolving, inquirybased approaches to learning,
and improve our high school science laboratories.
 Coordinate with IDEALNM and the New Mexico Computing Applications Center to provide highquality distance learning
opportunities in math and science for students and teachers.
 Utilize our large resource of engineers, mathematicians, and scientists to supplement the math and science content
knowledge available to students and teachers.
 Create effective partnerships between schools, government agencies, businesses and community organizations to improve
math and science education.
 Begin a public awareness campaign to emphasize the importance of math and science education to each individual
and to our State.
New Mexico Project 2012, prepared by the New Mexico Math and Science Advisory Council, is a detailed set of findings and recommendations designed to achieve these objectives.
