Oh, What a Tangled Web we Weave: The Roller Coaster Ride that is Mathematics Identity

Mathematics Education Seminar

Oh, What a Tangled Web we Weave: The Roller Coaster Ride that is Mathematics Identity
Series: Mathematics Education Seminar
Location: ENR2 S395
Presenter: Maggie Hackett, Director of K-12 Mathematics and Science, Sunnyside Unified School District

In this session, we will explore various messages students receive that aid in formulating their own mathematical identities. I will share some of my experiences this year as an 8th grade mathematics teacher and what I have found to be helpful in helping to build positive identities in my students. Participants will engage in storytelling, speech writing, and of course, some mathematics. 

This is a series of NSF Noyce Seminars for the AZ Noyce Mathematics Teaching (MaTh) Scholars Project in Secondary Mathematics Education (PI: Cynthia Anhalt; Co-PI: Marta Civil; Co-PI: Jennifer Eli; Co-PI: Rebecca McGraw).
