Mathematical conversations with Mexican mothers: Why teachers should care

Mathematics Education Seminar

Mathematical conversations with Mexican mothers: Why teachers should care
Series: Mathematics Education Seminar
Location: ENR2 S395
Presenter: Fany Salazar, University of Arizona

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. 

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).
