Description

Ethnomathematics: Pushing Back Against K-12 Traditional School Mathematics

Saraswati Noel, UW PhD Candidate

This workshop aims to push back against current US schools' eurocentric forms of mathematics as well as exploring th concept of ethnomathematics, the relationship between math and culture.

Participants will engage in mathematical activities that center family, community, indigenous and ancestral knowledge and learn about current efforts to bring Ethnic Studies curriculum to mathematics classrooms in Seattle Public Schools to connect and improve academic success for all students. Saraswati Noel is a former math educator at Seattle World School, which primarily serves recent immigrants to the US. She currently is earning her Ph.D. in Math Education at the University of Washington. Saraswati is passionate about immigration rights and is committed to diversifying educational materials to create a space where all voices are able to contribure to the growth and development of public pedagogy.
