Rochelle Gutierrez – How Our Definitions of Math And Equity Relate To Who Excels – February 28, 2017

Wondering how your working definition of equity stacks up against others? Should we even be using the word “equity” anymore? This session will review the different definitions of equity our field has used over the past few decades and will offer a 4-dimension framework that can be used to assess one’s work on a daily basis. In addition, we’ll consider how that framework connects with our individual conceptions of “what is mathematics?” And, finally, we’ll connect these together to explore how our definitions of mathematics and our definitions of equity ultimately influence who excels in our classrooms. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
