Equity for underserved students: Using place-based mathematics in the classroom

Place-based education, which connects issues of local relevance to educational goals, can engage and inspire students of mathematics. However, examples of curricula are not widely distributed and are difficult to find. In this interactive session, several examples of place-based mathematics lessons will be presented, along with a description of the development process for each. Participants are encouraged to bring their own examples and ideas for developing new lessons for their local community. Follow the link below to access the Google Group which contains links to all files and the presentation. Further, participants are encouraged to post lessons, ideas, and resources, and to collaborate in developing more place-based lessons.
