Math for Identity and Belonging: Representing Data Creatively - Winter 2022
Registration closes Friday, January 28th.
Data is all around us. One way to advance equity in the math classroom is to give students opportunities to look carefully at the data in their lives, collect it, and share it with others in a meaningful way. Through completing this workshop, you will practice this process for yourself so that you will be able to bring the experience to your students. 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 steps of the process together, sharing ideas and support along the way.
