VIDEO: Making Cultural Assets Count: Funds of Math Knowledge in Yucatec Maya Math Classrooms

The wealth of cultural assets that minority students and students with fewer socioeconomic resources bring to the classroom are frequently undervalued and overwritten. If we continue to ignore these students’ assets, we perpetuate the larger system of inequity. How can we make sure that we illuminate the assets of all of our students in our classrooms? This presentation illustrates the problem and offers some solutions. If you would like to watch this presentation on my research in a Yucatec Maya village, then check out the video from the SRJC Arts and Lecture Series from September 24, 2018. You could show parts of it to students in a math, anthropology, education, or equity course.

Making Cultural Assets Count…

How can we help students do better in math? Maybe we can shine the light on student assets during class instead of overwriting student autonomy and creativity by using canned curriculum. We should encourage students to experiment, explore, and express their unique approaches—especially students who have distinguished themselves by coming from a community with exceptional autonomy and improvisational expertise, like the Yucatec Maya students in this study.

Attend or Zoom in to my talk about my research, Making Cultural Assets Count: Funds of math knowledge in a Yucatec Maya village and middle school. It happens as part of the SRJC Arts and Lecture Series on Monday, September 24, 2018 in the SRJC Newman Auditorium from 12:00 to 1:00pm. It counts a PD flex at SRJC, too.

SRJC Arts and Lecture Series presents Making Cultural Assets Count: Funds of Math  Knowledge in a Yucatec Maya community and middle school by Dr. Felicia Darling.

I will present on my 6-month, ethnographic study in the Yucatán (lots of pictures). The wealth of cultural knowledge students bring to all of our classes is remarkable. This study highlights community knowledge and innovative, everyday problem-solving approaches that students bring to math class. This is on Monday, September 24, 2018 in the SRJC Neuman Auditorium from 12:00 to 1:00pm. It counts a PD flex at SRJC.
