#### MEC’s mission is to work in concert with educational communities in support of quality mathematics in schools.

We believe that only with knowledgeable communities — including teachers, administrators, parents and the public-at-large — will we, as a nation, secure powerful and relevant mathematics programs in our schools.

Therefore, the Mathematics Education Collaborative (MEC), a Washington-based non-profit, works in partnership with school districts and mathematics leaders to secure a well-informed public committed to making sound decisions about mathematics education in local schools, and committed to improving mathematics education for every student and teacher.

To accomplish our mission, MEC offers a series of community math nights and courses for teachers, administrators, and the public-at-large. The components of the MEC community engagement model provide all the necessary elements needed to establish a common base of dialogue, knowledge and understanding to achieve high quality mathematics in K-12 schools.
