The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is the global leader and foremost authority in mathematics education, ensuring that all students have access to the highest quality mathematics teaching and learning. We envision a world where everyone is enthused about mathematics, sees the value and beauty of mathematics, and is empowered by the opportunities mathematics affords.
Mission: The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is the public voice of mathematics education, supporting teachers to ensure equitable mathematics learning of the highest quality for all students through vision, leadership, professional development, and research.
Math as a Catalyst for Change-for ALL Students. Educators increasingly recognize the important role that mathematics teaching plays in helping students to understand and overcome social injustice and inequality. This collection of original articles is the start of a compelling conversation among some of the leading figures in critical and social justice math. An important read for every educator, this book shows how to teach math so that all students are given the tools they need to confront issues of social justice today and in the future. https://www.nctm.org/Store/Products/Teaching-Mathematics-for-Social-Justice--Conversations-with-Educators/
This book explains how to teach math for self- and community-empowerment. It walks teachers through the process of using math—across all high school content domains—as a tool to explore issues of social injustice including environmental injustice; wealth inequality; food insecurity; and gender, LGBTQ, and racial discrimination. https://www.nctm.org/Store/Products/High-School-Mathematics-Lessons-to-Explore,-Understand,-and-Respond-to-Social-Injustice/
