What a Difference a Year Can Make
During the past six months, mathematics educators from nine organizations joined together to dedicate the year to building our collective knowledge and understanding of topics and issues related to equity and social justice in mathematics education. On September 1, a  "Call for Collective Action to Develop Awareness: Equity and Social Justice in Mathematics Education" was launched as mathematics educators were invited to join this year long journey. I invite our members to join us as we learn together and plan actions that will make a difference in the future of mathematics education for our students. Visit www.tinyurl.com/EQSJMATH to learn more about this initiative and join us on Twitter, #EQSJMATH.

I would also like to share that TODOS has also set up a discussion board. So I hope to see NCSM members who are also TODOS members join in the conversation.

Registration is now open!

Join us at the 49th NCSM Annual Conference, April 3-5, 2017. All sessions will be in the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio, Texas. Our keynote speaker is Eli Luberoff of Desmos, speaking on
