**Our Guiding Principles:**

*Our work is driven by four guiding principles:*

- All students can and should develop a belief that mathematics is sensible, worthwhile, and doable.
- All students are capable of making sense of mathematics in ways that are creative, interactive, and relevant.
- All students can and should engage in rigorous mathematics through rich, challenging tasks.
- Students’ academic success in mathematics must not be predictable on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, language, religion, sexual orientation, cultural affiliation, or special needs.
