Latino/a and Black Students and Mathematics: The Student at the Center Series

Rochelle Gutierrez, Sonya E. Irving

Using new perspectives on mathematics as a cultural and social activity and new research on learning outside the school, the authors ask readers to rethink the problem of mathematical achievement for all students, and for Latino/a and black students in particular. The paper argues that doing so will help those students connect how they learn in the classroom to their lives outside of school, and help reduce the “achievement gaps” that exist in our current educational system.
