Our forward-thinking and groundbreaking research projects often result in insightful and inspiring learning resources, many for free.
Equity Forum
Forum for Equity in Elementary Mathematics

What it is: A place to connect with others who are reflecting, in their own contexts, on elementary students’ equitable participation in mathematics, regardless of their location, student population, or curriculum. 

It provides resources, publications, and professional learning opportunities that will broaden and deepen discussions among educators as we seriously and passionately pursue equity in mathematics, with a specific focus on the elementary grades.

We invite you to join us in this work and be a part of the conversation.
