The Investigations Center for Curriculum and Professional Development is excited to announce a new web-based resource to support equitable mathematics teaching and learning in the elementary grades. The new site—the Forum for Equity in Elementary Mathematics—will be a place for educators to reflect on and discuss equity, access, identity, and agency in the K-5 mathematics classroom. Its goal is to provide resources, publications, and professional learning opportunities to broaden and deepen perspectives on equity and to open up discussions among educators as we seriously and passionately pursue equity in mathematics learning for elementary students.

This work is not curriculum specific. While it is informed by our decades of work on Investigations and professional development related to it, equitable teaching and learning applies to every classroom in every school, regardless of the adopted curriculum materials. The Forum for Equity in Elementary Mathematics grows out of several years of work in which our team studied the literature around equity in mathematics, with a particular focus on how students who have been historically marginalized in the elementary mathematics classroom can be supported in being doers of K-5 mathematics. Given the limited examples of materials and information focused specifically on the elementary grades, the work of this forum was born.

The Forum launches on September 27, 2023. We hope you will join us and be part of the conversation. Sign up to be notified when resources become available, events are announced, or blogs are published.
