 10/18 Registration

Workshop Title: Bruce's Beach

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 18th, 6:30-8:00pm (EST) via Zoom

Presenters: Megan Staples, University of Connecticut; Kaitlyn Seeto, Framingham Public Schools; Toby Way, Ethel Walker School

Description: In this session, we engage participants in a modeling problem solving task in relation to Bruce's Beach, a Manhattan Beach (LA area) property that was taken from the Bruce family through eminent domain nearly 100 years ago. We use this real situation to understand the loss of wealth to the Bruce family, and prompt a discussion about intergenerational wealth and our current disparities between white and non-white families in America today.

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.
