American Mathematical Society

Statement on Efforts to Reexamine and Revise Mathematics Education

(as adopted by the Council on April 2, 2022)

Now more than ever, students need to develop their abilities in problem-solving, numerical reasoning, abstract thinking, and logical analysis so that they can fully participate in our quantitatively sophisticated society. The AMS supports open, inclusive, and civil discourse aimed at reexamining and, where needed, revising all levels of mathematics education. The AMS affirms that all students must have equitable access to high-quality programs that fully draw on and develop their mathematical capacities in contexts that engage students in the power, beauty, and relevance of mathematics.
