Course Description

The vision of this mathematics course is to support all students as they develop healthy and strong identities as mathematics learners and grow to be mathematically skilled, to enhance their ability to use mathematics to make sense of the world around them, and to enable them to make critical decisions while engaged in mathematical thinking. This vision is attained in a mathematics classroom filled with high academic expectations and deep engagement that generates enthusiasm and curiosity – an inclusive classroom where all students receive the highest-quality mathematics instruction and learning opportunities are empowered to interact as confident mathematics learners, and are thereby supported in reaching their full potential.

Throughout the course, students actively participate in the learning of mathematics by making connections to their lived experiences and to real-life applications. They continue to develop a critical consciousness of how socio-cultural structures within systems impact individual experiences and opportunities and shape their identities as mathematics learners.
