NCTM/NCSM Joint Statement on Moving Forward: Mathematics Education in the Era of COVID-19

NCTM and NCSM have issued a joint statement on Moving Forward: Mathematics Education in the Era of COVID-19.

We live in uncertain times. Public health is at the forefront of our minds, and our schools have been disrupted in ways we have never seen. Although no one can predict how education might look in the coming months, it is in the best interests of our students to strategize how we might best meet their needs in the upcoming months. Moving Forward is the result of a joint effort of NCSM: Leadership in Mathematics Education (NCSM) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) that presents considerations, questions, and potential solution processes to educators and school leaders to address the challenges induced by the COVID-19 pandemic of spring 2020. In this document, we show how effective practices for mathematics teaching and learning can provide helpful direction to address the challenges that teachers, school leaders, and policymakers face now and will continue to face in the months ahead.
