In his follow-up to the groundbreaking Maththatmatters, David Stocker gives us Maththatmatters2 a collection of 50 brilliant lessons for grades 6-9 that link mathematics and social justice. For educators keen to provide rich leaning opportunities and differentiated content that engages students with their lived realities, these lessons are sure to spark meaningful discussions…and action.
Maththatmatters brings together math and social justice, in a way that makes them both more compelling, and the world a little more understandable.
– Linda McQuaig, author
Actually, I have never understood math better. Not only do I understand the general skill, I can also begin to understand the world better. And if I understand the world better I can change things. And knowing that is one of the best things in the entire world. There is no way to describe that feeling.
– Xochil, student
We are at a point in history where we need young people to be fully engaged in their worlds, and mathematics for social justice plays no small part in that engagement.
