US Math Recovery Council® (USMRC) was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2003, with headquarters currently located in Eagan, Minnesota. Since its incorporation in 2003, US Math Recovery Council has been delivering high quality professional development for mathematics throughout the United States.

Today, US Math Recovery Council is a thriving organization.

The mission of US Math Recovery Council is to transform numeracy education, connect research with practice, and empower educators to advance student mathematical thinking and success through Math Recovery principles.
