Nueva has long supported an interdisciplinary approach in which learning is authentic and focused on students’ interests and needs. Nueva classes encourage students to tackle messy, complex problems in which construction of knowledge is a practice shared by students, teachers, and environment. The mathematics team at Nueva firmly believes that mathematics is essential to deeply understand social and political issues. The session focuses on our experiences in building a mathematics course grounded in social justice. We will discuss how we gathered resources, defined goals and content objectives, and created projects that support understanding social issues through a mathematical lens. We will share the success and growing pains of such a course and possible ideas of how to embed social justice issues into other mathematical courses.
