    Research Conference in these Challenging Times

    In these changing and challenging times, the NCTM Research Committee is working hard to re-craft the 2021 Research Conference to better support the individual, community, and collective needs and opportunities of the mathematics education research community.  There is a clear desire to use this experience to strengthen the connections and collaborations within the community, to increase active engagement during and after the conference, and to collectively better understand current challenges and opportunities. The potential exists to increase the connections between research and practice at all levels and positively influence the impact mathematics learning has for each and every student.
