The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project (UCSMP) is a multi-faceted project of the University of Chicago intended to improve competency in mathematics in the United States by elevating educational standards for children in elementary and secondary schools.[1] The UCSMP supports educators by supplying training materials to them and offering a comprehensive mathematics curriculum at all levels of primary and secondary education. It seeks to bring international strengths into the United States, translating non-English math textbooks for English students and sponsoring international conferences on the subject of math education. Launched in 1983 with the aid of a six-year grant from Amoco,[1] the UCSMP is used throughout the United States.

UCSMP developed Everyday Mathematics, a pre-K and elementary school mathematics curriculum.
