our mission

the number lab was founded to meet the challenge of educating our children at high levels in mathematics. We do this through our micro-school, through practice-based professional development for educators, and through classroom resources that promote number reasoning.

the challenge

The advancement of the education system in the United States has been severely stifled for decades by pervasive conservative notions of teaching and learning. This has caused historically poor mathematics instructional methods to persist, diminishing students' confidence as mathematicians and contributing to a considerable lag in performance in the classroom and then impacting the STEM-pipeline of the United States. the number lab strives to meet this challenge locally and nationally.
