Imagination + Innovation = Impact
CMAST is dedicated to strengthening science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by creating rigorous, active, connected, and continuously student-directed classroom where risk taking and mathematical and scientific thinking flourish.
Welcome to the Center for Math and Science Teaching.
Loyola Marymount University’s Center for Math and Science Teaching (CMAST) is committed to developing, inspiring, and retaining excellent STEM teachers.
- CMAST partners with educational organizations to implement a Teacher Leadership model that transforms math & science education by training, supporting, and growing a team of expert scholar practitioners (teachers) who collaborate and take action to lead the transition to Common Core State Standards within their schools and district.
- CMAST provides high quality professional development that supports teachers in analyzing their practice through the lens of CCSS rigor within the context of their instructional design choices to strengthen math and science (i.e. STEM) knowledge in order to create a classroom culture where students do mathematics/science.
