Social Justice

Ksenija Simic-Muller

Addressing social justice issues in college mathematics courses: Conversations about social justice are commonplace on college and university campuses. Social justice contexts are increasingly present across the curriculum, including mathematics courses, as mathematics is a powerful tool for understanding issues such as poverty, homelessness, or the mortgage crisis, to name a few. The goal of the session is both to feature already existing efforts to connect college mathematics to social justice, and to initiate an ongoing conversation about this pedagogical approach. Talks in this session should present mathematics curriculum (individual lessons, projects, assignments, or entire courses) or pedagogical approaches that address equity social justice, and can feature any level of college mathematics.
