The National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) is a non-profit entity created to raise funds for the improvement of mathematics and science education in the United States. The organization, which was founded in March 2007, was launched with the support of the ExxonMobil Foundation and aims to scale-up two proven programs: training and incentive programs for AP and pre-AP courses and UTeach. NMSI’s staff has provided ongoing training and support for AP teachers, including making recommendations for workshops to attend and for AP mentor teachers.
