Leveraging MOSTs (Mathematically Significant Pedagogical Opportunities to build on Student Thinking) is a collaborative project among researchers at Brigham Young University, Michigan Technological University and Western Michigan University that focuses on improving the teaching of secondary school mathematics by improving teachers’ abilities to use student thinking during instruction to develop mathematical concepts.


For more information about how you might use the MOST framework in your work, please contact Keith Leatham at kleatham@mathed.byu.edu.
