Talking Math in San Diego, CA
Had a great experience giving my presentation “Striving to Teach Mathematics for Social Justice: A Learning Experience” at the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Annual Meeting in San Diego. My previous experiences presenting have been to relatively small rooms. Imagine my surprise when I walk into a room set up for hundreds! I enjoyed sharing my experience attempting to teach mathematics for social justice in a high school classroom and received helpful questions and feedback. A key question I received was about resources or research about teaching mathematics for social justice within a rural context. This question is the same one that has led me to engage in my dissertation study to start in the fall.
