  1. Learning and Teaching Mathematics with Maps Haiwen Chu Laurie Rubel Lauren Shookhoff This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant Nos. 0742614 and 0119732. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.

  2. Centering the Teaching of Mathematics of Urban Youth A two-year professional development and research project partnered with two schools in two communities in Brooklyn.

  3. Theoretical Framework • Culturally relevant • mathematics pedagogy • Teaching mathematics for understanding • Mathematizing local contexts • Critiquing power in and with mathematics (Rubel, 2008) • Culturally relevant pedagogy • Academic achievement • Cultural competence • Critical consciousness (Ladson-Billings, 1995)

  4. Program Activities Summer Institutes All-day Professional Development Workshops School-Based Meetings Maps, mapping, and math Scavenger Hunts with Students Community Data and Teaching Mathematics for Understanding

  5. Perspectives on Maps • Purpose • Perspective • Power • Representation

  6. Four levels of scale • Global • National • Regional • Local
