Hi mathematics educators! We know times are tough, but we wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year and announce the first MTC4SJ workshop of the year. We're excited for next Tuesday's session Mural Mathematics about the intersection of math and art, featuring one of the artists that has worked on social justice murals in Hartford, Bloomfield, and Windsor. See below for the registration link and the full description. Please share with colleagues and we hope to see you next week!


 1/18 Registration


Title: Mural Mathematics
Date/Time: Tuesday, January 18, 6:30-8:00pm (EST) via Zoom
Presenters: Angela Boratko, Hartford Public Schools; Sacha Kelly, CREC; Caroline Psutka, Manchester Public Schools
Description: Throughout Connecticut, murals and other art installations have increased the visibility of social justice issues. For example, in Hartford, Bloomfield, and Windsor there have been Black Lives Matter murals created by community artists and activists. Join us to experience the crucial yet easy to overlook mathematics behind these murals. This is an opportunity for you to consider: "What social justice issue would you stand up for?" Participants will experience some of the elements of this student project including Google mapping tools for measurement, exploring circle properties, and drafting a social justice mural design. We will also share all components of the project, including extensions to take action in your own community.

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
