Abstract

The Oklahoma State Department of Education through the Darlington Public Schools sponsored a program called “OK-RMSP: Oklahoma Rural Mathematics and Science Partnership.” The program focus is to increase content knowledge, expand the information technology readiness, the creation of standards based mathematics and science lessons for K-12 teachers in rural western Oklahoma, the creation of communities of practice to allow for the teachers to be linked to each other during the school year and to create a living document from the imposed standards. The objectives of OK-RMSP come from the Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS, 1995) as well as the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM) from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM, 1995) and the National Science Education Standards (NSES) from the National Research Council (NRC, 1996). OK-RMSP is also in alignment with the goals and objectives set by Oklahoma Teacher Education Consortium.
