The National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project "Mathematics, Science, and Technology Partnership" (MSTP) developed a multidisciplinary instructional model for connecting mathematics to science, technology and engineering content areas at the middle school level. Specifically, the model infused mathematics into middle school curriculum through the alignment of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculum, creating a mathematics infused curriculum planning template for teachers, and the implementation of connected STEM professional development workshops in middle schools. Through data collected from teachers, administrators, and faculty members involved in these activities, it was found that all involved were satisfied with connected curriculum, STEM teachers were able to successfully increase their own mathematics pedagogy and content knowledge, and students were able to grasp mathematical concepts when they were applied in science, technology, or engineering content areas.
