Social Justice Math in Action: From Educational Model to Educational Movement

According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), supporting students’ ability to “understand and critique the world” is one of the purposes of math education. As educators address inequities amid the current pandemic and heightened concerns about racial injustice, how can math classrooms contribute?

Join us on Nov. 17 for a webinar hosted by Francesca Henderson, Just Equations’ Math Educator in Residence, which will highlight current social justice math work and explore avenues for growing and strengthening these efforts in K12 schools and postsecondary institutions.

Register today to connect with like minds and deepen your understanding of what social justice math is, what it could be, and why it is an important avenue for supporting students’ agency, engagement and, ultimately, mastery of mathematics. Whether you are a math educator, administrator, district or state policymaker, advocate, or researcher, please join us for this rich and timely discussion.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Education Trust-West and TODOS: Mathematics for All.
