About Us

The Strategic Taskforce to Accelerate Mathematics Pathways (STAMP) is a group of Alabama teachers, mathematicians, teacher educators, administrators, guidance counselors, business people, and others who are working to improve the mathematical success of Alabama’s students by ensuring pathways from high school mathematics through beginning postsecondary education or entry into the workforce.

STAMP is one of 32 state teams participating in the “High School to College Mathematics Pathways: Preparing Students for the Future” initiative of the Conference Board of Mathematical Science. Click for more information.
