Press Release: AMTE Statement on Technology

One goal of AMTE is to improve mathematics teacher education and K-12 education by recognizing the ever-increasing impact of technology on our field. Our organization is thus committed to critically examining how technology intersects our work as Mathematics Teacher Educators (MTEs) and supporting research-based incorporation of technology in our work.

Press Release: AMTE Statement on Equitable and Inclusive Mathematics Teaching and Learning

AMTE advocates for teachers’ freedom to use their expertise and professional judgement to meet the individual needs of all learners in their complex classrooms as they work to teach mathematics in equitable and anti-racist ways. We recognize that mathematics curriculum is multifaceted and needs to represent the diverse experiences, histories, and identities that make up our world. For too long, mathematics curriculum has been presented from one point of view and has ignored contributions from mathematicians of color and from diverse backgrounds, opportunities to use mathematics for liberation, and connections between mathematics and the lived experiences of historically marginalized and minoritized students. It is important that there is diversity in representation and opportunities for learners to engage, explore, connect with, and question the curriculum and to see how mathematics extends beyond their experiences. As an organization, we support mathematics teacher educators and teachers across the nation who are working to bring this authenticity into the classroom to enhance the learning of mathematics for all.
