As part of our continuing work and collaboration, we invite you to participate in quarterly webinars on Equity and Social Justice in Mathematics Education. Participating organizations include:

  • National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM)
  • TODOS: Mathematics for ALL (TODOS)
  • Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE)
  • National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)

The webinar is based on the following readings and questions associated with A Call for a Collective Action to Develop Awareness: Equity & Social Justice in Mathematics Education (PDF).

Position Statements

  • Mathematics Education Through the Lens of Social Justice: Acknowledgment, Actions, and Accountability (NCSM and TODOS)
  • Equity in Mathematics Teacher Education (AMTE)
  • Access and Equity in Mathematics Education (NCTM)

What are the pathways and roadblocks to facilitating professional conversations and actions discussed in the position statements?

Now that It's TIME-Themes and Imperatives for Mathematics Education: A Leadership Framework for Common Core Mathematics has been widely distributed and now that mathematics education leaders like you are launching their 2014-15 slate of activities, it's the perfect time to turn to converting the ideas and suggestions of It's TIME into specific actions.

NCSM has identified a set of 10 programmatic imperatives in the areas of knowledge, instruction, assessment, and systemic change that mathematics leaders are responsible for establishing to increase student learning. This "call to action" webinar will provide focused and practical guidance for providing the essential leadership required to significantly improve the productivity of school and district mathematics education systems. Specific actions will be shared that can greatly improve your mathematics leadership potential.

NCSM Great Tasks with TI Technology

Presented by: Connie Schrock, Jennifer Wilson

Sponsored by: Carnegie Learning, Inc.

Replay the webinar (length: 58 minutes)

What is a "great task"? How is a great task used effectively in the classroom? Published by the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) with support from Texas Instruments, NCSM Great Tasks for Mathematics 6-12 provides opportunities for students to explore meaningful mathematics by challenging their thinking about essential concepts and ideas. Explore tasks that are aligned to the Common Core content standards, with special attention given to the Common Core Mathematical Practices. Learn how tasks can be enhanced with the TI-84 Plus family and TI-Nspire technology to promote mathematical reasoning and active engagement for students of the 21st century.

Mathematical Modeling in Three Acts

Presented by:

Dan Meyer, as seen on CNN, Good Morning America, Everyday With Rachel Ray, and 1,000,000 times on TED.com

Gwendolyn Zimmermann, PhD, Assistant Principal, Adlai E. Stevenson High School District 125, Lincolnshire, IL

Sponsored by: Carnegie Learning, Inc.

Replay the webinar (length: 43 minutes)

In our work with teachers and students we find modeling with mathematics to be one of the most misunderstood practice standards. We'll briefly examine what modeling is and what it isn't. Then we'll describe a method for doing and teaching modeling that draws on digital media and plays out over three acts. We'll also look at the implementation challenges that arise when trying to modify a teacher's existing definition of a fundamental mathematical practices.
