Join two Presidential Awardees of Mathematics and Science Teaching as they discuss the importance of quantitative literacy and critical thinking processes needed for high school students to make wise decisions in their personal lives. They’ll address topics like,
- The importance of quantitative reasoning,
- How these mathematical practices align with common core,
- Broadening the purposes of school mathematics, and
- Obstacles that prevent math from working for all students, and how teachers can remove them.
Ultimately, we want all of our students to share our appreciation for the beauty and usefulness of mathematics and statistics and see themselves as capable lifelong learners. We will take the time to show you how!
