To promote equity in the classroom, we must recognize the individuality and uniqueness of students. By relating a mathematician to something familiar to the student, they will engineer a stronger connection to that person. In this edWebinar, learn how we can inspire our students to see mathematicians as role models and as a potential future career option.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through junior high teachers and school leaders.
