Math Summit


In October 2022, the Nation’s Report Card revealed that fourth- and eighth-grade students assessed in the 2021-22 school year experienced the largest declines in mathematics performance in the program’s history. These national declines in achievement on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) highlight the unprecedented learning crisis that has followed the COVID-19 pandemic. Even before the pandemic, gaps in the mathematics achievement of students with the highest and lowest performance were already widening.

 On the afternoons of September 12, 19, and 26, 2023, national, state, and local leaders—along with educators, researchers, policymakers, and instructional experts—will convene to explore efforts to address this crisis. This virtual conference will bring together leading experts to discuss the latest scholarship on strategies for mathematics instruction and academic interventions; highlight solutions rooted in research and successful classroom practices; and explore emerging resources. Sessions will begin at noon, EDT, each day and will conclude at 5:30 PM.

 Sessions at the Summit will address six themes across Pre-K–3, 4–8, and 9–12 grade-level spans: 

  • Increasing Opportunities to Learn and Raising Expectations for All
  • Strategies for Differentiating Instruction for Diverse Learners
  • High-Dosage Tutoring and Other Academic Recovery Strategies
  • Learning Progressions and High School Pathways
  • Language and Mathematics
  • Leveraging STEAM Applications for In-Demand Careers

In addition, the Summit will feature a series of sessions, daily, that will feature STEAM experts in conversations with classroom teachers about classroom applications of STEAM expertise along with strategies to support post-secondary success and preparation for in-demand STEAM careers.

You can register here. Registration is free, and open to everyone.
