This department publishes brief news articles, announcements, and guest editorials on current mathematics education issues that stimulate the interest of TCM readers and cause them to think about an issue or consider a specific viewpoint about some aspect of mathematics education. The Whole-school Agreement strategy proposes that all educators in a school community agree that mathematics is better taught when everyone shares in consistent language, symbols and notation, models and schema, and rules that support the developing learner.
