About This Webinar

What is math identity and why does it matter? This session will help participants think about their own identity around mathematics and the identities of their students. We will use personal stories and research-based definitions and practices to examine the concept of personal and social identity, particularly math identity. Participants will understand what math identity is, different ways that it is formed with a focus on messages/experiences at home, messages from the media, and messages/experiences from teachers), why positive math identity matters, and strategies to help students form a positive math identity.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts "I'm Not a Math Person" - Identity and Its Impact on Math Success
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.
