The Adult Numeracy Network is the professional organization for math educators who work in adult education in the United States and a partner affiliate with the National Council of Teacher of Mathematics (NCTM). 

We are a community dedicated to quality mathematics instruction at the adult level. We support each other, we encourage collaboration and leadership, and we influence policy and practice in adult math instruction. Our members include teachers, tutors, researchers, administrators, and professional developers working in adult basic education (ABE), adult numeracy, high school equivalency, community colleges, developmental mathematics, and family numeracy. 

Our network is a place to share the joys, challenges, resources, and insights for teaching and learning math and numeracy skills to adult learners.

All ANN members are invited to the 2022 Adult Numeracy Network Annual Membership Meeting!

When: Jun 3, 2022 2:00 PM – 3:30PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Please, Register in advance for this meeting

The Adult Numeracy Network welcomes Graciano Petersen as Equity Officer!

"I am interested in serving on the board because I greatly appreciate what ANN does by promoting numeracy at all ages and emphasizes the continued need to learn about numbers, calculations, and math for adult learners. I am passionate about this role because I lead my organization's DEI Team and I work on equity issues in DC as well. I have led my organization's staff, our board, and our volunteers on several DEI trainings, and in several DEI conversations. I am deeply committed to equity for all learners regardless of their seen or unseen disability, ethnic or racial background, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age."

We stand with our Black students, Black teachers, and the Black community and all students and teachers working to build a just world.

    • As an NCTM affiliate, we stand in solidarity with their statement released June 1, 2020

    This event with Jennifer Suh is being offered by Mathigon as part of their guest speaker series

    Jennifer Suh is a mathematics educator in the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University. Dr. Suh teaches mathematics methods courses in the Elementary Education Program and mathematics leadership courses for the Mathematics Specialist Masters and Ph.D Programs. She directs the Center for Outreach in Mathematics Professional Learning and Educational Technology, COMPLETE and provides professional development focused on mathematics content and teaching practices. Her research focuses on using Lesson Study with school based teams to develop high leverage mathematics teaching practices and deepen teachers’ content knowledge through an understanding of children's development of mathematics learning trajectories; develop k-8 problem-based modeling tasks to promote equitable access to 21st century skills for diverse student populations in STEM disciplines. Currently, her project called EQSTEMM, Advancing Equity and Strengthening Teaching with Elementary Mathematical Modeling, focuses on promoting equitable participation of all students engaging in rigorous mathematics through modeling.

    2022 We The People Math Literacy for All Conference

    The Algebra Project in conjunction with We the People Math Literacy for All Alliance is excited to announce a virtual working conference scheduled for July 28th and 29th! Registration is now open.

    Click here to register!

    The conference is free for all to attend. The conference will place special emphasis on lifting up the voices and work of students and teachers.

    The conference is multi-faceted, both designed to honor and explore Bob Moses’ legacy as well as output tangible work. We have panels, workshops, and presentations focusing on:

    • Events and work that honors and advances Bob Moses’s legacy.
    • Forums for young people and teachers to share their ideas and present their real demands for money, structures, and resources that will allow them to be successful in teaching and learning mathematics.
    • Sessions designed by young people and teachers that demonstrate success and share useful practices that support math literacy.
    • Highlights of practitioner-researcher collaborations currently in process in both informal and formal learning settings.
