Funded in April 1999, the New Hampshire Impact Center was made possible by a grant from the Center for the Enhancement of Science and Mathematics Education (CESAME) at Northeastern University. The Center’s main objective is to improve mathematics and science education by working closely with school districts and teachers to enhance teacher content and pedagogical knowledge. Through its network of associates around the state, the NH Impact Center provides meaningful professional development workshops on a variety of topics, at various grade levels. The Center currently maintains a Curriculum Resource Room at Plymouth State University’s Concord campus. Teachers can use this resource room to explore various NSF-funded programs and to try classroom manipulatives. The Center also provides assistance in implementing standards-based science and mathematics curriculum materials that will enrich and enhance learning for all New Hampshire children.
The Impact Center has been involved with several grant-funded projects with the goal of improve math education throughout New Hampshire.
