Teaching Mathematics for Spatial Justice
Dr. Laurie Rubel, Distinguished CUNY Fellow
Thursday November 19, 2015
Furcolo Hall Room 101 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM
This talk will present an argument for integrating place-based
education with critical mathematics, toward teaching mathematics for
spatial justice. Local Lotto and Cash City, two curricular modules
with associated digital tools, were designed to investigate the systems
of the state lottery and personal financial institutions, as
critical spatial phenomena. The modules have been piloted and studied
in multiple iterations in urban high schools and a community college.
The talk will share findings in terms of how the critical spatial focus
supported the learning of mathematics and provided
opportunities for students to think critically about the given theme.
