Grants to Transform Algebra 1 into a Gateway to Success

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation wants to use a multimillion-dollar grant program to remove barriers to algebra—a gateway to higher-level mathematics—for English language learners, students from families in poverty, and Latino and Black students. Educators can apply with ideas for redesigned, culturally relevant curricula for either physical or virtual teaching that not only strengthens students’ math identity but also touches on students’ experiences, as well as social justice. Known as “Balance the Equation,” the program will award up to $1 million in grants for up to 10 education technology developers, nonprofits, and other organizations in five focal areas: building out support systems, improving relevance of algebra content, elevating understanding of mathematical language, empowering and strengthening teacher practices, and developing new or better feedback mechanisms.

Deadline: Applications are due by noon (PT) on November 6, 2020; awardees will be announced in early 2021.
