All too often we hear the phrase that only certain students are “good at math.” This is a very common misconception and threatens the success of all students, especially those from marginalized demographics.

Addressing this issue is crucial because proficiency in math opens doors to numerous opportunities, including higher education and well-paying careers in STEM fields. Quality math instruction not only builds essential skills but also instills confidence and a sense of belonging in students who may have been discouraged by prevailing stereotypes.

Join the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) as we discuss how to improve all student’s math skills by strengthening the school’s STEM culture.

  • Hear how schools are preparing all students to succeed as they build toward rigorous STEM coursework.
  • Learn how to create inclusive, student-centered classrooms that utilize student lived experiences, unique backgrounds, and local funds of knowledge to explore complex math concepts.
  • Explore the ways your school can improve vertical math skill progression across multiple grade levels and how this can affect students’ personal connections to STEM learning.
