Federal Funding

Federal funding is made available through formula funds and competitive funds.

Formula funds - also called allocated amounts or block grants - are distributed based on a predetermined formula, such as the number of low socio-economic status (SES) students at a given school or district. 

Competitive funds - or discretionary grants - are awarded to eligible schools, districts, or other entities who apply by responding to an RFP, or request for proposal. The RFP response must describe in detail the need and purpose for using the funds based on the specifics of the application.

Coronavirus funds - Several coronavirus-related funding opportunities are available for ST Math. These include portions of the CARES Act as well as flexibilities that allow schools or districts to repurpose existing funding.

    The Learning Counsel Podcast: Changing the Culture of Math Learning

    Maybe math learning could be better if it was in sync with the current generation’s culture – that of Generation Alpha. LeiLani interviews Brandon Smith, the Lead Mathematician and Product Director at MIND Education about how learning-by-doing is a key part of a new cultural address for math learning. While Brandon gives specific examples of what can be done, the discussion also turns to equity in learning and development. Brandon also gives key specific points of what the math learning itself needs to involve – an education in math education!

Examples of Competitive Funding for ST Math

  • National Science Foundation (NSF) Discovery Research PreK-12 (DRK-12)

    This NSF competitive funding opportunity seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science (STEM) by preK-12 students and teachers, through research and development of STEM education innovations and approaches. Projects in the DRK-12 program build on fundamental research in STEM education and prior research and development efforts that provide theoretical and empirical justification for proposed projects. Projects should result in research-informed and field-tested outcomes and products that inform teaching and learning.

  • NSF Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST)

    ITEST supports projects that engage students in technology-rich experiences that: (1) increase awareness of and interest in STEM and ICT occupations; (2) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to those occupations; and (3) develop STEM-specific disciplinary content knowledge and practices that promote critical thinking, reasoning, and communication skills needed for entering the STEM and ICT workforce of the future.

  • NSF STEM + Computing K-12 Education (STEM+C)

    STEM+C supports research on how students learn to think computationally to solve interdisciplinary problems in science and mathematics. The program supports research and development that builds on evidence-based teacher preparation or professional development activities that enable teachers to provide excellent instruction on the integration of computation and STEM disciplines. Proposals should describe projects that are grounded in prior evidence and theory, are innovative or potentially transformative, and that will generate and build knowledge about the integration of computing and one or more STEM disciplines at the preK-12 level.

  • NSF Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL)

    AISL seeks to advance new approaches to and evidence-based understanding of the design and development of STEM learning opportunities for the public in informal environments; provide multiple pathways for broadening access to and engagement in STEM learning experiences; advance innovative research on and assessment of STEM learning in informal environments; and engage the public of all ages in learning STEM in informal environments.

  • National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Mathematics Education Trust (MET)
    Fostering Support of Mathematics Learning in Multilingual Classrooms (Pre-K-12)

    To increase understanding and expertise in fostering support of multi-language development when teaching mathematics. The proposed project must explicitly support the implementation of equitable and rigorous mathematics teaching that incorporates students' languages and cultures in their learning of mathematics.

    Enhancing Student Mathematics Learning Through the Use of Tools and Technology Grants (Pre-K-12)

    To encourage the innovative use of technology and other tools to "help teachers and students visualize and concretize mathematics abstractions..." (Principles to Actions). When used appropriately, they can enhance other effective teaching and promote meaningful learning opportunities for students. The focus of the proposal should be on the mathematics being taught and innovative uses of the tools and technology.

  • Title III – Language Instruction for English Learners and Immigrant Students
    Why choose ST Math for your Title III funds?

    Title III ensures language instruction for limited English proficient and immigrant students.

    In traditional math education, ELs can miss out on crucial opportunities to understand the meaning behind the math. Because so much of traditional math materials are word-heavy, there are language hurdles EL students must overcome before they can even begin to focus on math concepts. With the ST Math visual instructional program, language barriers are removed, giving ELs access to the same level of math rigor as other students.
