100Kin10 Project Team: Standards for Culturally Relevant Mathematical Practice and Inquiry (2020)

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) of Mathematical Practice describe a set of “process and proficiencies” which represent expectations for the ways in which students practice mathematics. Urban Teachers has developed four beliefs about mathematics practices based on a vision of culturally relevant teaching and social justice mathematics and have utilized Matthews et al (2013) framework for Culturally Relevant Cognitively Demanding Mathematics Tasks. Of importance for promoting just and equitable learning experiences are Teaching Tolerance (2017) social justice standards released by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Project Team will utilize these perspectives to create Standards for Culturally Relevant Mathematical Practice and Inquiry. 

This project addresses the foundational math catalyst, a 100Kin10 priority area. Learn more here
