Our History

The Tidewater Team was originally established in Fall 2007 through The College of William and Mary and a Mathematics Science Partnership Grant funded by the Virginia Department of Education. Dr. Marguerite Mason, Professor of Mathematics Education, develops and implements the grant proposals submitted to the Virginia Department of Education. Each year the team has a unique focus driven by the needs established by The Virginia Department of Education and our surrounding school districts.
