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.

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
