Advocacy

There are many ways you can be an advocate of mathematics education in Georgia. Check out some of the most important issues below and see how you can get involved.

GCTM Roundtable - March 2021

GCTM would like to sincerely thank Dr. Lya Snell, the GaDOE Mathematics Program Manager, for providing an informative and enlightening Roundtable session on March 30th, 2021.  Through this dialogue, members were invited to ask questions and give feedback about the new proposed mathematics standards. Thank you, Lya, for the opportunity to learn more and have our questions answered!  We look forward to having you as our Keynote speaker this year at GMC!

You can view a  full video of the presentation (use passcode F#2FV@ws) or the slides from the presentation.

GCTM continues to advocate for math teachers through the state, and our voice is being heard. We were contacted to contribute to the article below on the development of the standards and how it impacts our teachers and state. Click on the article below for more information.

Standards Update

In July 2019, The Georgia Department of Education released surveys on the Georgia Standards of Excellence for Mathematics and English Language Arts. Both surveys were made available to all stakeholders, including teachers, educational leaders, business/industry, and community members. In total, from July 23 to September 26, nearly 14,000 Georgians completed the math survey and more than 11,000 completed the ELA survey.
