The National Research & Development Center on Cognition & Mathematics Instruction, also known as the Math Center,* aims to enhance the conditions of instruction and improve learning outcomes for middle school students in important and challenging mathematics concepts and skills.

Specifically, the Math Center brings together leading experts in cognition, instruction, assessment, research design and measurement, mathematics education, and teacher professional development around the core goal of redesigning components of a widely used middle school mathematics curriculum, Connected Mathematics Project (CMP).
