All students can be successful mathematicians if we incorporate their funds of knowledge and prior experiences into our mathematics classrooms. Gutierrez’s research shows how students’ funds of knowledge can be used to help them survive and thrive; and how family and community activities, such as playing games, cooking, and storytelling can be used as cultural and linguistic resources when learning mathematics. How can educators use students’ funds of knowledge in a mathematics classroom? Where do we begin to uncover and tap into the assets that students bring with them to their mathematics classroom? What are some best practices to become more culturally responsive in mathematics?
In this edWebinar, participants explore and experience research-informed, classroom-tested approaches for culturally responsive teaching in mathematics. Together we explore what funds of knowledge are, and how they can be used to inform mathematics instruction. Then we look at best practices for culturally responsive teaching based on NCTM’s Equity and Access strand and current research in the field.
Viewers will walk away with new ideas on how to tap into students’ funds of knowledge through an asset-based lens, and how culture impacts mathematics teaching. This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through junior high school teachers in New York.
