I am so proud of Jasleen Sahota–one of my previous math tutees, and currently a student at Foothill College. She just presented with Sophia Nikravesh at Stanford at the Bay Honors Consortium Research Symposium on May 6. The title of their research study was, “Make ‘Em Laugh: An exploration of the not so laughing matter of gender biases against female comedians on YouTube.” I was so impressed by her mixed method approach and how appropriate her methods were for her research question. Also, her research is relevant to a pressing issue in society. Look out world!
I am honored to be invited to participate in a panel at Stanford following a screening of the video Navajo Math Circles, because of my research with math in an indigenous community in México. The panel will include George Csicsery, the filmaker, Karen Biestman, Associate Dean & Director of the Native American Cultural Center at Stanford, and Dr. Felicia Darling, Ed Specialist in Math at MCOE. The event is from 6:30pm to 9:00pm in CERAS 101. It is sponsored by the EAST House.

A mini-video from my presentation at APA Division 45 & PME-NA on my study Making Cultural Assets Count: Community Approaches to problem solving in Yucatec Maya math classrooms.
I will be presenting at PME-NA at 11:20am today in the Arizona Ballroom, Salon 12. My presentation, Is this math? Two community approaches to problem solving in Yucatec Maya math classrooms, will NOT be in Spanish. It is a bilingual presentation–which means that only the slides are in Spanish. and English:)
Please stop by my bilingual/Spanish presentation of my research entitled, ¿Es matemáticas? Dos recursos culturales se relaciona de resolver problemas comunitarios en las aulas mayas yucatecas/Is this math? Two community approaches to problem solving in Yucatec Maya classrooms. My research report session is in the Arizona Ballroom, Salon 12 from 11:20am to 12:00pm at the Starr Pass Marriott, Tucson, Arizona at the PME-NA Conference.
I hope I see some familiar faces in the audienceJ Here is a link to a 3 minute video of a presentation I did in Yucatec Maya in Valladolid, Yucatán.
