Math for Identity and Belonging in Community: Representing Data Creatively

Winter 2023

Interested? Register ASAP!

Registration closes Thursday, January 26th.

Data is all around us. One way to advance equity in math is to provide opportunities to look carefully at the data in our lives, collect it, and share it with others in a meaningful way. Through completing this workshop, you will practice this process so that you will be able to share this experience with others. You will choose something about your daily life to track, track it for a month, and then find a creative way to represent it and share it with the group.  We will work through the process together, sharing ideas and support along the way.
