TODOS: Mathematics for ALL


Volume 15, Issue 7 July 2022

Message from the TODOS President

As we prepare to take on roles in our schools and institutions, we know that we as individuals advocate for students who are underrepresented in the field of mathematics. In my view, so many systems were not built to be 'inclusive' - I often say that universities, schools, and so many other 'systems' were actually built with particular humans in mind - and the humans were not the diversity of humans we understand today - gender, sexual orientation, race, linguistically, neurologically, and physically. ... Go to the President's full message.
