The emergence of new technologies that can solve complex math equations for students, the rising importance of data science skills for the future of work, and a growing emphasis on problem solving in K-12 math learning are putting technology front and center in efforts to improve math education. This special report—which features exclusive survey data from the EdWeek Research Center—examines how those developments are changing math instruction by helping or hurting student learning; what important lessons educators have learned about how to integrate technology into math instruction and when to stick with low-tech, traditional methods; and how the evolution of artificial intelligence will likely influence math education in the future.
