Welcome to the TE-MAT database! This site was developed to support professional development providers as they design and implement programs for pre-service and in-service K - 12 mathematics and science teachers.

In this database you will find:

A Conceptual Framework
This framework highlights key elements critical to the design and implementation of effective professional development programs, with numerous links to relevant reviews of materials and practitioner essays.

Reviews of Materials
This searchable collection of reviews is the heart of the database, intended to help K - 12 mathematics and science professional development providers more readily select materials appropriate for their program goals. Reviews may be browsed by purpose, subject/grade level, topic area, features, or author and title, using the navigation bar to the left.

A good place to begin is to become familiar with the underlying Philosophy of TE-MAT , then explore the elements of the Conceptual Framework.
