140 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
William P. Bintz
Sara Delano Moore

This session will discuss the relationship between equity and rigor. The definition of rigor one chooses determines which students appear to succeed and which do not. The speakers will present definitions of rigor from a variety of sources; share examples of rigorous, classroom-based mathematical tasks; and discuss implications of these definitions and tasks to increase equity in the mathematics classroom.
