Vermont State Mathematics Coalition

Vermont Mathematics Initiative

The Vermont Mathematics Coalition has been a strong advocate for the Vermont Mathematics Initiative (VMI), a comprehensive, innovative, and highly content-intensive mathematics teacher professional development program designed to ensure high quality mathematics instruction and high levels of mathematics learning in elementary schools across the state of Vermont.

The following is a summary of the VMI from its founding in 1999 through 2012. A more detailed overview of the VMI can be found on the VMI website or on the website of its founder Ken Gross who is also a founding member of the Coalition.

In brief, results indicate that VMI has a major impact on the achievement of low income students.

Higher student achievement has been observed wherever the VMI model and courses have been implemented with fidelity.
