Summit #3: Humanizing Mathematics with Sunil Singh
On Sunday, September 22nd from 10AM-11AM ET, join Sunil Singh, author of Pi of Life and co-author of Math Recess: Playful Learning in an Age of Disruption, for an online video conference on humanizing mathematics.
In this interactive discussion, we will discuss revolutionary thinking of mathematics education and how to instill a humanized mathematics curriculum into our schools.
Participants will be posed with these questions, but the conversation will take us on a journey of its own:
What does it mean to have a “humanized mathematics curriculum”? How does this differ from the predominant way mathematics is taught?
How can we redefine what “success” looks like in mathematics, as well as lessen math anxiety and promote wellness in the classroom?
How can we make substantial changes to the process and curriculum to make mathematics more engaging? (e.g. social justice, real life scenarios, PBL, decolonization)
Why is it imperative that we implement these changes? What specific notes will you take away from this conversation? What questions and concerns do you still have?
Stop in our Zoom conference room (or feel free to just listen in!) Participants aren’t limited to game-changing mathematics educators. Cross-pollinating mathematics to all subjects is needed and worthwhile!
Participation is free.
Please complete the following form for a Zoom invite link (sent within 24 hours of the event.) We can’t wait to see you there!
