Proceedings. Conference on Adult Mathematical Literacy
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.
