AZ Noyce MaTh Seminar: What is Culturally Responsive Mathematics Teaching and Why Does it Matter?

Series: Mathematics Education Seminar
Location: ENR 2 S395
Presenter: Dr. Mark Ellis of Fullerton, University of Arizona

Participants will be engaged in reflecting on historical outcomes of school mathematics in the U.S. and considering, through an interactive case study, how culturally responsive mathematics teaching might alter these patterns, particularly for historically underserved populations. A reflection framework that supports the design of culturally responsive mathematics lessons will be introduced along with examples of how teachers have put this into practice.
