Thursday, April 14, 2011: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
205/206 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Anita Bright

Is mathematics neutral? What other lessons, aside from math, do the materials we provide to students contain? What values do the problems we choose and textbooks we share imply and transmit? The speaker will analyze textbooks, trade books, and standardized tests and discuss whether these match the values we espouse. A detailed electronic handout will be available.
