In this paper, we highlight successful courses and classroom materials developed in recent years for in-service fifth through ninth grade mathematics educators by the Vermont Mathematics Partnership (VMP). The VMP’s Middle Level Mathematics Initiative (MLMI) is a professional development program designed to enhance mathematics instruction to help all middle level students succeed in mathematics.

The VMP is a targeted math and science partnership funded by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Education [20]. Building on the successful Vermont Mathematics Initiative [19], a content-focused graduate program for elementary mathematics teacher leaders, the VMP has worked directly with partner
