Looking Back: 25 Years of Research from the TIME 2000 Mathematics Teacher-Preparation Program

TIME2000 Event Mathematics Teaching

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the TIME 2000 Program and the 20th anniversary of the annual TIME 2000 conference: “Celebrating Mathematics Teaching.” The conference, attended by hundreds of high school students and their math teachers, celebrates the joy of mathematics and promotes mathematics education as a rewarding career option. To commemorate this significant milestone, the Queens College Library has compiled a bibliography of research and reports related to the TIME 2000 program since its inception. 

Founded in 1997 by Queens College Professors Alice Artzt and Eleanor Armour Thomas with funding from the National Science Foundation, The Teaching Improvement through Mathematics Education (TIME) 2000 is a highly successful program at the Queens College School of Education dedicated to recruiting and training future mathematics teachers. One of TIME’s innovative features is that students progress through the program as a cohort, providing a valuable support network during their undergraduate experience and serving as the foundation for their future professional connections. On a monthly basis, TIME undergraduates participate in seminars covering topics such as educational technology and the relationship between mathematics and other fields of study.

In exchange for their scholarship, TIME 2000 undergraduates agree to teach for a minimum of two years in middle school or high school. TIME program graduates can be found in schools across the New York Metropolitan area. 

We invite you to explore the bibliography to gain a deeper understanding of how TIME 2000 has been an innovator in the field of teacher preparation.
