Welcome to Math Education Matters, a website containing resources that will support mathematics educators in the areas of curriculum, instruction, and research!
CORE EDUCATION VALUES
high level math
I believe that all students should be taught by qualified teachers who have high expectations for and believe in their students based on the work of Dr. Ruthmae Sears and the National Council for Teachers of Math.
support for students
I believe that educators should provide students with support, accommodations, and remediation that may be necessary.
culturally relevant pedagogy
I believe that all students should receive instruction that connects to their backgrounds, experiences, cultural perspectives, and traditions based on the work of Dr. Ladson-Billings, Dr. Gutstein, and Dr. Rochelle Guitterez.
asset based teaching
I acknowledge that there are factors that lead to different outcomes for certain populations of students and we seek to address them.
state & Federal law & policy
I advocate for federal and state laws and policies that promote equity for all stakeholders including families, students, and educators based on our core values and goals.
