Greetings fellow educator!
Welcome to What is Math? -the first installment in my Real Talk Math Series: Thoughts on Numeracy.
This set includes a power point slide deck, explicit lesson plans, book recommendations and printables to support your work with your learners. In this resource, students will explore the history of math and discuss the ways in which they can use math to help them make the world around them better.
As my students and I explore the history of math and the stories of mathematicians who have left us all a legacy of learning, we disrupt the thinking that math is only for certain groups. We create pathways for students to question the norms that promote inequity and to use their own agency and actions to recognize how power is consolidated using data and how it can be distributed more equitably using questioning, reasoning and anti-oppressive action.
