Workshop Title: Caloric Intake: What Matters?

Presenters: Taryn DiSorbo, Cheshire Public Schools; Christian McCarthy, Hamden Public Schools

Description: Currently about 1 out of 4 youth identify as being in the LGBTQIA+ community, and the fastest growing sub-population within that community are transgender and non-binary individuals - people challenging societal norms about gender identity. In this workshop, we engage participants in a lesson that introduces Algebra I vocabulary and concepts in an accessible way while allowing students to critically parse the relative importance of several factors that affect the recommended caloric intake for different people, including gender. Participants will also explore other situations where societal biases or stereotypes might be reduced or eliminated through the application of a mathematical lens.

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.
