Minneapolis Public Schools Math Vision

MPS graduates can choose to use a mathematical lens to understand problems they encounter in their lives and their work.   
Because of the powerful mathematical problem solving skills of our graduates and the diverse perspectives they bring, Minneapolis and the broader community will be recognized as a global leader in developing effective solutions to the world’s problems.
