Social Justice

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.
