How does this differ from the predominant way mathematics is taught?How can we redefine what “success” looks like in mathematics, as well as lessen math anxiety and promote wellness in the classroom?How can we make substantial changes to the process and curriculum to make mathematics more engaging? (e.g. social justice, real life scenarios, PBL, decolonization)Why is it imperative that we implement these changes? What specific notes will you take away from this conversation?
