Mathematics and Human Connection: What Does It Take to Be a Social Justice Math Activist?
Students need to feel empowered by mathematics in order to create change, shift mindsets, and revolutionize our world. The intersection of Social Justice Mathematics and Project Based Learning is the goal of this work, since not all social justice work is achieved through projects, and not all projects are about social justice or are authentic. Social Justice Mathematics and Project Based Learning engage students in authentic learning experiences. When the door is opened for teachers to learn alongside their students there is an opportunity to develop students’ sociopolitical consciousness.
