In our work, we aim to educate ourselves, educate others, and advocate for change around supporting all students to experience algebra as meaningfully connected to their lives.

Recent examples of our research, education, and advocacy efforts toward antiracist futures include:

  • Study of how antiracist algebra teaching supports students’ learning through Dr. Gholdy Muhammad’s “cultivating genius” lens of joy, criticality, intellect, skill, and identity.
    Project: “It was meaningful because …” (September 2023)
  • Holding work sessions focused on Black Brilliance and Mathematics Coaching (Fall 2021).
