The AMATYC Teacher Preparation ANet provides a forum to:

  1. Examine implications of preK–12 mathematical and professional standards on the teacher preparation curriculum and courses taught during the first two years of college;
  2. Facilitate sharing of curricular resources, best practices, and innovative ideas used in mathematics courses for prospective preK-6 teachers;
  3. Provide support and professional development to new and veteran mathematics faculty involved in the education of preK-6 teachers of mathematics.
