    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.

    Commissioner's Summer Math Challenge

    It is hard to believe that it has been just over a month since we welcomed our students back. Over the summer students were encouraged to participate in the Commissioner's Summer Math Challenge. We hope that a large number of our students took advantage of this opportunity. We want to recognize schools and districts that showed exceptional participation, similar to the Governor's Reading Challenge. To do that we need data!!  Please complete the Summer Math School Reporting Form by November 4, 2022.
