15 Feb Math 4 Antiracism: New Opportunities for Educators
Did you catch the Season 2 launch of Math 4 Antiracism on the our Facebook page? We had such a great conversation about the generational impact of quality math education with Dr. Elvira Williams, the first African American in the state of North Carolina to earn her PhD in physics, and her daughter, Shawn Muslim, who is also a STEM educator. T2TGlobal staff member Suhailah Waheed engaged our guest speakers (who happen to be her grandmother and mother) with questions about their own experience with math education growing up and how this has impacted their lives.
We listened in to this three-generation, living-room conversation on how quality math education has driven greater social justice for an entire family and how it can do the same for all of us, no matter what problems we are seeking to solve.
If you missed the episode’s debut, you can catch up here! We are certain that you will be inspired by the possibilities generated for the hard work that you put in, day in and day out, for students. You will also hear some tips for celebrating Black History in the math classroom from the Physics Queen herself!
Are you interested in further partnering with us to explore how your math classroom can drive antiracism and greater social justice? We are excited to announce that we will be launching an online course in our Community of Practice on the Participate platform in the coming days. Stay tuned next week to see how you can earn professional learning credit as you engage more deeply with Math 4 Antiracism.
We are excited to be in touch soon with all of the details about our course. Until then, mask up, math on!
