Recent reports and research studies, such as the Mathematics Association of America’s "A Common Vision for Undergraduate Mathematical Sciences Programs in 2025" (2015) and the National Research Council’s Education for Life and Work (2012), as well as NCTM’s Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All, present very similar descriptions of high-quality mathematics teaching and learning. This emerging consensus provides new opportunities for systemic improvement in mathematics education, with particular emphasis on pathways from high school to collegiate mathematics. How can we best capitalize on these new opportunities? What actions should each of us, as teachers, school and district leaders, and professional organizations, including NCTM, take to turn these opportunities into increased mathematics learning for all students?
