    Create Positive Change for High School Mathematics

    Today's students face a future where there is an increasing need for mathematical skills in the workplace. As a high school teacher, leader, administrator, or counselor, part of your profession involves helping ensure that students are prepared for both personal and professional success.

    NCTM's upcoming publication, Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics: Initiating Critical Conversations, will be a must-read for anyone who's involved in high school mathematics education.

    Themes include:

    • Broadening the purposes for teaching high school mathematics beyond a focus on college and career readiness
    • Dismantling structural obstacles that stand in the way of mathematics working for each and every student
    • Implementing equitable instructional practices
    • Identifying essential concepts that all high school students should learn and understand at a deep level
    • Organizing the high school curriculum around these essential concepts to support students’ future personal and professional goals
    • Providing key recommendations and next steps for key audiences

    Catalyzing Change engages all individuals with a stake in high school mathematics to catalyze critical conversations across groups.
