Educators and policymakers have been worried about the math skills of the nation’s students for decades now. U.S. students lag behind their peers in international assessments. And just last month, a nationally representative EdWeek Research Center survey found that nine in 10 teachers are “very” or “somewhat” concerned about a math deficit during this time of learning remotely.
Students can’t afford to shrug off the subject as “too hard” when, more than ever, Americans depend on big data and math-fueled technology.
This special report showcases bold approaches—math discourse, “de-tracking” math teachers, and addressing math fears, to name a few—that educators are using to help all students succeed at math.
Wednesday, May 20, 1-2:30 PM E.T.
In this online event, Education Week reporters and expert guests will explore ways to support all students in math classrooms in elementary, middle, and high schools.
