Empowerment Through Access and Equity

Friday February 9, 2018
1:00 - 2:00 PM
Room 118

We have a long-standing and seemingly intractable problem in mathematics education: inequity. Children of certain racial, ethnic, language, gender, ability, and socio-economic backgrounds experience mathematics education in school differently and many are disaffected by their mathematics education experience. This session will address why we teach mathematics and the actions educators can take to challenge structural obstacles and implement equity-based instructional practices.
