About This Webinar

Presented by Justin Lanier

"By emphasizing that math is beautiful, in a way you’re not showing enough empathy because you’re excluding the people who don’t get it.” says Steven Strogatz. How do we describe and therefore circumscribe our subject? What positive and evocative language can and do we use to describe math, and what are the effects of doing so? What is the range of experiences and emotions we would like to share with our students? How can we help them to package up and reflect upon these? Come and unpack your own linguistic arsenal and uncover your own notions of what math is—and can be.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts 12 May: Beyond Beauty
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
