Welcome!

The Family Math movement is taking off. We envision a world where race and income no longer predict opportunities for young children and families to learn, practice and enjoy math. Young children of all backgrounds will engage in vibrant and plentiful culturally responsive math learning opportunities that prepare them for success in school, career, and life. Through a network of advocates, funders, policymakers, and practitioners from all settings where children learn– including but not limited to early childhood and home visiting programs, libraries, and museums – we seek to share and develop the foundational tools, supports, and communication necessary to close early math opportunity gaps.  

As we plan to bring our network together, we want to hear from you about the ways you’d like to be engaged, and the types of tools and resources you’d like to have access to.  

Our short survey consists of 10 questions and should take only 5 minutes of your time! Please complete this survey by COB April 12, and forward to partners you work with.

And thank you in advance for your taking time for this. You are receiving this because you either responded to our Letter of Inquiry a few months ago or have participated in different family math events over the years. Our goal of the survey is to harness all of the interest we have in the movement and find ways to bring us all together. We continue to imagine and develop what this network could become and we are excited to learn from you all as we build it together.
