UC Davis Mathematics Project Saturday Seminar Series: Equitable Access
As Robert Kennedy once said, “Like it or not, we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.” We have all had to shift our thinking and instruction to address our new reality and the new ways in which we must support our students and each other. In an effort to continue our support of teachers and their students, the UC Davis Math Project is changing the design and format of our Saturday Series for 2020-21. The silver lining to this change is our sessions will be shorter, you will not need to leave the comfort of your home, and they will occur more frequently to allow for more interactions between participants. While there may be uncertainty about how teachers will provide instruction this year, we want to hold steadfast in our core belief: All students must be provided with a mathematical education that allows them to make sense of the world quantitatively and to appreciate their own power to reason. This includes making sense of mathematics through active engagement in problem solving and grappling with increasingly challenging tasks in an interactive way, where challenging and critiquing the thinking of others is safe and valued. The overarching focus for this year’s Saturday Series is Equitable Access.
