Mathematical conversations with Mexican mothers: Why teachers should care
This study was conducted as part of the project Let’s Talk about Math: Parents and Teachers Talking and Doing Mathematics Together (LTAM). The project main objective is to create a communication bridge between parents and teachers. The participants in this project are 10 Mexican immigrant mothers who have children in K-3 and six K-3 teachers. In this presentation, I will share some of the insights that five of the mothers offered about the mathematics education of their children and about their experiences with mathematics as learners themselves.
