Editorial Reviews

Review

Who would have thought that math could be taught through such compelling social issues as racial profiling, the war in Iraq, and environmental racism? This superb book is an extraordinary collection of ideas for any teacher who wants to bring passion, engagement, and social justice to the mathematics classroom. --- Lisa Delpit, Felton G. Clark Distinguished Professor of Education, Southern University, Baton Rouge, and author of Multiplication is for White People.

The premise of this book is that mathematics is not just a set of rules and procedures to be memorized and regurgitated, but a relevant set of tools to make sense of the social injustice and power imbalances in our society. Mathematics teachers at any level interested in motivating their students should read this book. --- Thomas A. Romberg, Bascom Professor of Education, Professor Emeritus, University of Wisconsin-Madison

From the songs of Sweet Honey in the Rock we know that 'We who believe in freedom cannot rest.' Now from the pages of Rethinking Mathematics we know that 'We who believe in freedom cannot rest' until we ensure that the learning and teaching of school mathematics sings of social justice. We should all learn its new songs. --- Bob Moses, President and Founder of the Algebra Project

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book in a Graduate course for teachers of Mathematics. They loved it! Why? It had a different focus then just getting to figure out what to do with the numbers in the problem. This book realized that most understand that in many different ways. This book asked the question: "What do we do with the money we accrue? What do we do about outrageous cost of borrowing money? How is the environment effected by the way we use resources? What about hidden cost? How much money do we spend in heating and cooling some of our buildings? How does this choice effect other choices? This book helped us to see the need to review the questions we are asking in math and to 'rethink' mathematics for the future not the past!

A complete different view of teaching mathematics with a social purpose. This lesson you would not find in your curriculum but can be introduce as to students and become conscious of hands on use of mathematics.
