As a math education major and a member of the Education group of the Collaboratory for Student Partnerships and Applied Research, I chose to make the Burkinabè math educational system my context of study. After studying the French math educational system and the Burkinabè math education system in Spring 2010, I created a written report for future Education group members to use as a resource. After follow up research and learning in the site team trip in summer 2010 to Mahadaga, I spent Spring 2011 developing tools to aid the teachers and students at the Centre pour l‟Avancement des Handicapés (CAH) in Mahadaga, Burkina Faso in the field of math education.
