Intergenerational Wealth workshop: Family and individual wealth is not shared equally across Connecticut and this disparity of wealth held by Connecticut families impacts the lives of future generations. Inequalities in income and wealth accumulation, combined with systemic injustices, serve to widen the wealth gap over generations. Join us for this session to experience a lesson that serves as an introduction or an extension of students’ understanding of compound interest and exponential growth. Students will use graphs to model wealth accumulation over time and explore qualitative and quantitative factors that contribute to social injustices around economic mobility.
Book Release: We are excited to be launching our first open-access resource book containing 7 lessons that connect secondary math content to social justice objectives! This important work was done by our cohort of 14 incredible Connecticut mathematics educators during our Summer Stars 2021 program. Please join us, many of the authors, and a few special guests as we make the book “live”, give a virtual tour, and celebrate an accomplishment.
