The Stereotypes About Math That Hold Americans Back
by Jo Boaler (November 2013)
Speed doesn't matter, and there's no such thing as a "math person." How the Common Core's approach to the discipline could correct these misperceptions.
On Tuesday, September 10, 2013 Kay Gilliland passed away following a courageous struggle with cancer.
Kay was a past president of the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics and then newsletter editor for 7 years following her term as president. Kay was a national advocate for equity in mathematics education and one of the founders of the EQUALS project at the Lawrence Hall of Science. She was actively involved in NCTM, NCSM, CMC and Mills College. In April 2013 Kay added the Glenn Gilbert/Ross Taylor award, NCSM's highest honor, to her many achievements. A lecture series, named for Kay and honoring her work in mathematics equity achievement, will serve as an ongoing legacy and reminder of this wonderful woman and her passion for mathematics education.
