  • What is diversity and equity? 
  • What are key differences between equality and equity? 
  • How do these differences impact mathematics teaching and learning? 
  • What is mathematical modeling? 
  • In what ways can we use content and tools, such as mathematical models, to engage students and teachers in modeling for equity? 

Date: June 27, 28, 29
