Before It’s Too Late  (BITL) is a series of  grants funded through Title II Improving Teacher Quality Program by the Office of The Commissioner of Higher Education designed to improve teacher’s of mathematics content knowledge in algebra, geometry, and statistics along with allowing them to develop sets of culturally relevant problems that will assist 6-12 grade students in learning mathematics relevant to their lives and thus preparing them with a strong mathematics background for careers and post-secondary education. 

Teachers attended one of various 5 day workshops based at the Montana Learning Center at Canyon Ferry Lake where they deepened both their understanding of mathematical theory as well as pedagogy.
