A three-day Working Conference on Adult

Mathematical Literacy was co-organized in March

1994 in Arlington, VA, by the National Center on

Adult Literacy, the National Council of Teachers of

Mathematics, and the Office of Vocational and Adult

Education of the U.S. Department of Education.

This invitational conference took a first step towards

ensuring that all adults in the United States acquire

the mathematical skills that they need to function on

the job and in society, to achieve their personal

goals, and to support their children’s education.
