Ensuring that school is engaging and relevant to students has long been recognized as a feature of good teaching. However, this strategy has not always permeated the math classroom. Culturally responsive math instruction and curriculum increase interest and enjoyment in math classrooms. Contextualizing math in a way that is real for students engages them more authentically with the content. In this session, math educators and researchers shared examples of how culturally relevant content and instructional practices can strengthen students’ math identities and learning.
