The Best Online Teaching Tool: Socially Relevant Math

About This Webinar

Data is at the center of discussions about police use of force & race, climate change, educational inequity, and many other important social issues. As math teachers, how can we lead meaningful discussions on such topics while teaching in the often tech-issue-ridden, awkward, and dehumanizing online setting? Together we’ll tackle this challenge by exploring the #1 predictor for students’ ability to succeed while learning online: their genuine interest in the content.

Recommended Grade Level: 9 - 12

I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).

Several years ago, Dash realized his AP Stats class was irrelevant. So, he asked his kids what they wanted to learn about. Soon, he and his students started exploring datasets related to policing and race, food deserts, the Spurs’s chance at winning the NBA title, immigration, and much more. That year, more students at the school passed the AP Stats exam than in the previous 16 years combined. This summer, Dash put these relevant lessons online by launching the Skew The Script website. In addition to teaching, Dash plays the banjo. He's bad at it, but no one can tell because it's the banjo.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts The Best Online Teaching Tool: Socially Relevant Math
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.
