Introduction to AdvanceKentucky and AP Mathematics Vertical Teams
AdvanceKentucky is an initiative of the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation (KSTC) in partnership with the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI)
Success is measured by growth in students’ participation in AP courses both in terms of enrollments and of Qualifying Scores (three and above on a five-point scale) in eligible AP courses, which typically are taken by juniors and seniors.
What is AdvanceKentucky?
NMSI originally consisted of six states: Kentucky, Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Recently added were Colorado and Indiana.
NMSI’s purpose is to increase the number of students, especially low-income and minority students, taking AP examinations in mathematics, science, and English and achieving qualifying scores (3-5) on these exams.
What is NMSI?
Physics B
Physics C
English Language and Composition
English Literature and Composition
Calculus AB
Calculus BC
Computer Science A
Environmental Science

Elements of Success
Middle school, high school, and AP® teachers in the same discipline work to develop a vertically aligned curriculum
Students don’t learn the skills and habits of mind they need to succeed in rigorous courses like AP all at once, but build them over time.
