Traditional Math curriculum in the K-12 system is taught from a Eurocentric and patriarchal lens. We serve a very diverse group of students, many of whom are members of an immigrant community. It is imperative that our students discover the importance of their “place” in American society throughout their time at ECHS.
The Algebra 1teacher encourages students to critically engage with the world through a Mathematics lens by using a variety of texts, current events, historical and other media to develop students' capacity for transformative resistance.
