# The Mathematical Education of Teachers II

Share this pageA co-publication of the AMS and CBMS

This report is a resource for those who teach mathematics and
statistics to PreK–12 mathematics teachers, both future teachers and
those who already teach in our nation's schools. The report makes
recommendations for the mathematics that teachers should know and how
they should come to know that mathematics. It urges greater
involvement of mathematicians and statisticians in teacher education
so that the nation's mathematics teachers have the knowledge, skills,
and dispositions needed to provide students with a mathematics
education that ensures high school graduates are college- and
career-ready as envisioned by the Common Core State Standards.

This report draws on the experience and knowledge of the past decade to:

- Update the 2001 Mathematical Education of Teachers report's recommendations for the mathematical preparation of teachers at all grade levels: elementary, middle, and high school.
- Address the professional development of teachers of mathematics.
- Discuss the mathematical knowledge needed by teachers at different grade levels and by others who teach mathematics such as elementary mathematics specialists, special education teachers, and early childhood educators.

Each of the MET II writers is a mathematician, statistician, or mathematics educator with substantial expertise and experience in mathematics education. Among them are principal investigators for Math Science Partnerships as well as past presidents and chairs of the American Statistical Association, Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics, Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences, and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

The audience for this report includes all who teach mathematics to teachers—mathematicians, statisticians, and mathematics educators—and all who are responsible for the mathematical education of teachers—department chairs, educational administrators, and policy-makers at the national, state, school-district, and collegiate levels.

This series is published in cooperation with the Mathematical Association of America.

#### Readership

Graduate students, research mathematicians, mathematics faculty, and those interested in the mathematical education of teachers.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

MET II is a book that I would like to see every professor of mathematics and statistics read. I did not have enough post-it notes to mark all of the thought-provoking passages, and intriguing research citations. ... There is something in this book for everyone connected to the teaching and learning of mathematics, including parents of school-aged children, K-12 administrators, and elementary math coaches. I highly recommend it.
