The Forum for Equity in Elementary Mathematics is dedicated to taking up equity, access, identity, and agency in the elementary mathematics classroom. Its goal is to open up discussions among mathematics educators as we seriously and passionately pursue equity in mathematics learning for elementary students. 

This Forum grows out of reflection on how elementary students who have been historically marginalized can be supported to be confident and powerful mathematical thinkers. In the literature on equity and mathematics, our team found fewer resources and examples focused explicitly on the elementary grades. The work of the Forum evolved from our interests in developing and sharing resources and connecting with others who are reflecting, in their own contexts, on elementary students’ equitable participation in mathematics, regardless of their location, student population, or curriculum.
