Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are many significant and relevant economic and social issues that can be discussed in mathematics classrooms. No matter the experiences, race or class of your students, there are opportunities for them to be change agents. In this session, middle and high school mathematics teachers will learn about the processes, benefits and challenges of integrating social and economic issues in their mathematics classroom. We will discuss an overview of how to integrate these issues in your mathematics classroom, examine existing lesson plans and an opportunity to work towards implementing a lesson or project in your own mathematics classroom. Resources and examples of lesson plans will be shared for teachers to use with their students.
