Creating Culturally Relevant Math Tasks–Not as Hard as You Think! – Pamela Seda
Many math teachers have a desire to use culturally relevant tasks but don’t know where to start. Finding culturally relevant tasks starts with understanding your students, finding out what they are interested in, what’s important to them, and what they value. In this session, participants will learn how to start this process by making small changes to math tasks and working their way up to tasks that truly engage and empower all their students.

I only saw part of this live – would love to know if links to the interactive documents and DESMOS activity are also available. A takeaway I’ll borrow is the “concept of time” as an element of culture (tardy student) and how we start math class – aligned to BTC ideas!
