The Mathematics and Science Education (Math/Science) topic supports research on the improvement of mathematics and science knowledge and skills of students from kindergarten through high school.

The Institute encourages researchers to explore malleable factors (e.g., children's abilities and skills) that are associated with better mathematics or science outcomes, as well as mediators and moderators of the relations between these factors and student outcomes, for the purpose of identifying potential targets of intervention. The rigorous evaluation of promising interventions is also strongly encouraged. In addition, the Institute invites applications to develop and validate new assessments of, as well as applications to validate existing measures of, mathematics or science learning.

The long-term outcome of this research will be an array of tools and strategies (e.g., curricula, programs, assessments) that are documented to be effective for improving or assessing mathematics and science learning and achievement.
