- Annual Perspectives in Mathematics 2018 by Imani Goffney (Editor); Rochelle Gutiérrez (Editor)Call Number: LNDL Stacks | QA1 .N3 2018ISBN: 9781680540093Publication Date: 2018-04-30Mathematics education will never truly improve until it adequately addresses those students whom the system has most failed. The 2018 volume of Annual Perspectives in Mathematics Education (APME) series showcases the efforts of classroom teachers, school counselors and administrators, teacher educators, and education researchers to ensure mathematics teaching and learning is a humane, positive, and powerful experience for students who are Black, Indigenous, and/or Latinx. The book's chapters are grouped into three sections: Attending to Students' Identities through Learning, Professional Development That Embraces Community, and Principles for Teaching and Teacher Identity. To turn our schools into places where children who are Indigenous, Black, and Latinx can thrive, we need to rehumanize our teaching practices. The chapters in this volume describe a variety of initiatives that work to place these often marginalized students--and their identities, backgrounds, challenges, and aspirations--at the center of mathematics teaching and learning.
- The Crest of the Peacock by George Gheverghese JosephCall Number: eBookISBN: 9781400836369Publication Date: 2010-10-04
- Hidden Figures by Margot Lee ShetterlyCall Number: LNDL Stacks | QA27.5 .L44 2016ISBN: 9780062363596Publication Date: 2016-09-06Before John Glenn orbited the earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as "human computers" used pencils, slide rules and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Among these problem-solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation.
- Inventing the Mathematician by Sara N. HottingerCall Number: eBookISBN: 9781438460093Publication Date: 2016-03-01Where and how do we, as a culture, get our ideas about mathematics and about who can engage with mathematical knowledge? Sara N. Hottinger uses a cultural studies approach to address how our ideas about mathematics shape our individual and cultural relationship to the field. She considers four locations in which representations of mathematics contribute to our cultural understanding of mathematics: mathematics textbooks, the history of mathematics, portraits of mathematicians, and the field of ethnomathematics. Hottinger examines how these discourses shape mathematical subjectivity by limiting the way some groups—including women and people of color—are able to see themselves as practitioners of math. Inventing the Mathematician provides a blueprint for how to engage in a deconstructive project, revealing the limited and problematic nature of the normative construction of mathematical subjectivity.
- Mathematics for Equity by Na'ilah Suad Nasir (Editor); Carlos Cabana (Editor); Barbara Shreve (Editor); Estelle Woodbury (Editor); Nicole Louie (Editor); James A. Banks (Series edited by)Call Number: LNDL Stacks | QA135.6 .M378 2014ISBN: 9780807755419Publication Date: 2014-06-27
- Mathematics for Human Flourishing by Francis Su; Christopher Jackson (Contribution by)Call Number: LNDL Stacks | QA8.4 .S85 2020ISBN: 9780300237139Publication Date: 2020-01-07In this profound book, written for a diverse audience but especially for those disenchanted by their past experiences, an award-winning mathematician and educator weaves personal reflections, puzzles, and stories to show how mathematics meets basic human desires and cultivates virtues essential for human flourishing. Readers will explore mathematical concepts-and see how mathematical thinking can even fulfill such longings as for love, play, freedom, justice, and community.
- Mathematics for Social Justice: focusing on quantitative reasoning and statistics by Gizem Karaali and Lily S. KhadjaviCall Number: eBookISBN: 9781470465742Publication Date: 2021Mathematics for Social Justice: Focusing on Quantitative Reasoning and Statistics offers a collection of resources for mathematics faculty interested in incorporating questions of social justice into their classrooms. The book comprises seventeen classroom-tested modules featuring ready-to-use activities and investigations for college mathematics and statistics courses. The modules empower students to study issues of social justice and to see the power and limitations of mathematics in real-world contexts of deep concern.

- Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O'NeilCall Number: LNDL Stacks | QA76.9.B45 O64 2016ISBN: 9780553418811Publication Date: 2016-09-06We live in the age of the algorithm. Increasingly, the decisions that affect our lives -- where we go to school, whether we get a car loan, how much we pay for health insurance -- are being made not by humans, but by mathematical models. In theory, this should lead to greater fairness: Everyone is judged according to the same rules, and bias is eliminated. But as Cathy O'Neil reveals in this book, the opposite is true. The models being used today are opaque, unregulated, and uncontestable, even when they're wrong.
