WHO DOES MATH
- EduTalks: Filiberto Barajas-Lopez & What Exactly Is School Math For? – In this thought-provoking video, Professor Filiberto Barajas-Lopez argues all cultures have rich mathematical traditions that we need to draw upon, asking two powerful questions: (1) Do our students feel like their own culture is reflected in the math they are learning? (2) What opportunities exist for them to develop lasting mathematical identities? His work focuses on ways that teachers can amplify opportunities for immigrant and non-immigrant students of color to productively participate in school math and learn ways to expand the way we understand what kinds of math count.
- Lathisms – This website was founded in 2016 to celebrate the work and contributions of contemporary Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians during Hispanic Heritage Month. Each annual calendar has a biography of a Latinx/Hispanic mathematician, for each day of the month. The biographies include information about their work, their teaching, and their service.
- Mathigon Timeline of Mathematics – This timeline shows cross-cultural contributions to mathematics from the Stone Age until today. Below are three of the celebrated contributions from the Maya, Inca, and Aztec civilizations.
