Math Lessons to Explore, Understand, and Respond to Social Injustice


We live in an era in which students of all ages have—through media and their lived experiences— a more visceral experience of social injustices. However, when people think of social justice, mathematics rarely comes to mind. With a teacher-friendly design, this series of books bring mathematics content to life by connecting it to student curiosity, empathy, and issues students see or experience.

Timelier than ever, teaching mathematics through the lens of social justice will connect content to students’ daily lives, fortify their mathematical understanding, and expose them to issues that will make them responsive citizens and leaders in the future.
