## Call for Nominations for the Award for Impact on the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics

#### Category: Prizes or Awards / Mathematical scientists/faculty, Institutions and Programs

This award is given annually to a mathematician or group of mathematicians who have made significant contributions of lasting value to mathematics education. Priorities of the award include recognition of (a) accomplished mathematicians who have worked directly with precollege teachers to enhance teachers’ impact on mathematics achievement for all students, or (b) sustainable and replicable contributions by mathematicians to improving the mathematics education of students in the first two years of college. The US$1,000 annual award is provided through an endowment fund established by a contribution from Kenneth I. and Mary Lou Gross in honor of their daughters, Laura and Karen. The AMS Committee on Education selects the recipient.
